Forty miles from busy downtown Portland, the Clackamas River Ranger District maintains the 8.2-mile Clackamas River Trail. It’s an escape from everyday life, and offers the perfect getaway for hiking, running and even snowshoeing.  The trail passes waterfalls, old-growth forests, a partial cave and beautiful views of the Clackamas River.

If you’re looking for a getaway, this is a great day trip.  During the summer months, you can camp at Indian Henry Campground and enjoy an evening of storytelling around the fire by the camp hosts.
