June Bark About Hike: Salmon River Trail

Sunday, June 12, 2016 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

Join us Sunday, June 12th to explore a road which has been "rewilded" for a beautiful hike through breathtaking forest. The upper Salmon River road was recently converted to a hiking trail (pictured right), extending Salmon Butte Trail #791 in the Salmon-Huckleberry Wilderness, while also restoring habitat for native Coho and chinook salmon.  Come see how well nature can reclaim the human-built environment through some remarkable restoration work!

Hike leader Lori Ann Burd (pictured below) is a former Bark Staff Attorney/Restore Mt. Hood Campaign Manager and current volunteer. Joining this hike will allow participants with the chance to hear her share stories of how she negotiated some of Mt. Hood's most creative restoration projects, which resulted in significant reductions in destructive off-road vehicle use, protected drinking water quality, and resulted in the creation of new hiking trails.

Carpools leave from the Hollywood Trader Joe’s, 4121 NE Halsey, (across the street from the Hollywood Transit Center, near the I-84 exit 2) in Portland at 9am sharp.
