Boulder River Trail

Boulder River Trail Professional Review and Guide

"A good hike any time of year, the trail is perfect for beating summer heat, enjoying winter rain, savoring autumn color, or being wooed by waterfalls that are swollen with spring rain. One thing about this trail remains constant: the trees. Whatever the season, you’ll travel through a forest that has defied time.

Boulder River’s moss-draped giants represent one of the last remaining large, low-country old-growth forests in the Cascades. Protected within the nearly 49,000-acre Boulder River Wilderness, these ancient trees are as impressive as the wild river they embrace."

The waterfalls on this hike offer some amazing views, however they are within the first few miles both -- the rest of the hike offered some good views of the river but the last leg I felt didn't give much of a payoff unless you were planning on camping out toward the end of the trail.
