Salmon la Sac Creek Professional Review and Guide

"A number of good trails lead out of the Salmon la Sac area, but this is one of the few that is almost completely ignored by snowmobilers and skiers, leaving it for snowshoers to explore in quiet solitude. The trail rolls east, climbing gradually through pretty ponderosa pine and larch forest."

Due to the lack of snow in the greater Seattle area, we were forced to travel a little further than normal to go snowshoeing this past winter. The upside was that we discovered the joys of the Salmon la Sac area in the winter. We have stayed at the campground before, but only during the summer months. The trails were great leading out of the area, with little elevation gain. We took the Cooper River trail which begins a couple hundred yards beyond the campground (which also has several other snowshoeing trails). It is a beautiful trail along the river, with the first mile or so fairly wide open and then gets a little thicker with trees until the valley opens up with great views of the local ridges. The campground is a great central location if you are looking for several shorter, low elevation gain trails.
