Mud Mountain Rim Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Enjoy an easy, family-friendly, 5.0-mile tour of the White River Gorge.
The trail begins at the entrance to the Mud Mountain Dam Recreation Area, following the fence for a short distance to the bluffs above the White River. As the name suggests, the route hugs the rim of the White River Gorge, offering glimpses of waterfalls and distant vistas through cottonwoods, alders, and the occasional evergreen. Although the trail crosses a number of roads that lead down to the river, trail makers do a decent job of minimizing confusion. Depending on how much exploring you’re up for, you may find yourself wandering through mixed forests and marshes down to the sandy riverside."
