Beautiful day on the Old Salmon River and Salmon River Trails! Plenty of snow on the ground with many icy spots. We wore Kahtoola's, which helped immensely. We were surprised that very few people were on the trail, but that worked for us!

It was a nice cool & cloudy day with no hikers on the trail. Above 2100ft the snow was sparse but still significant in some pockets. We learned that the Perimeter Trail is now completely open! It had been closed for a while due to storm damage.

What a beautiful winter wonderland in the Tillamook State Forest. We started at the Reehers Camp and did a bunch of different trails in the area. We went down to the Nehalem River, and then went south on the Gales Creek Trail, and then diverted onto the Step Creek Trail. Nobody on the trail system was a real plus! The snow was fairly solid, with a bit of crunch, but supported our weight nicely. A great first hike of the year!
