5.7 miles of hiking • 750' elevation gain •
With rain in the forecast but still wanting to get out, we decided to go for something easy and not far from Portland. Odd little hike, as parts of it are on road and right through grazing cows. (They seemed pretty docile, unlike the cows on the Fort to Sea Trail by the coast.)
Shellburg Falls were easily accessible, while grand views of the other falls in the area would require some bushwacking, which we opted not to do since we had our dog with us. Much less traffic here than nearby Silver Falls. Pretty, but wet day.
