Soda Springs Loop Trails 975 and 975a Professional Review and Guide

"Climb high on the slope of the Bumping River Canyon, then descend to Soda Springs. Western red cedar, grand fir, Engelmann spruce, and ponderosa pine make up the forest canopy along the riverbank. Beneath the tall trees grow wild rose and Oregon grape, and on the ground vanilla leaf grabs the open spaces. If you watch the river carefully, you may see a dipper.

Head east from the parking area, crossing the footbridge over the sparkling Bumping River. Most people take a minute in the middle of the bridge to gaze up- and downriver. Just past the bridge is a trail junction and a wilderness registration box;
get your wilderness permit here. To make the loop, turn right at the junction on Trail 975 and head upriver. Western red cedar, grand fir, Engelmann spruce, and ponderosa pine make up the forest canopy along the riverbank. Beneath the tall trees grow wild rose and Oregon grape,"
