For your own safety, please make sure you are prepared before heading out on your next adventure. Information on how to prepare for your trip and stay safe while on your hike is available from OregonStateParks.org and  PortlandOregon.gov. Always remember to leave no trace, pack out what you pack in, stick to designated trails, and refrain from feeding wildlife — and please note that irresponsibly taken selfies (even if they look great for the ‘gram) can be fatal

How do you get there?

If you’re driving from the West, from Interstate 5 at Salem, take exit 253 and go east on OR-22 towards Stayton or Detroit for around 49 miles until you reach Detroit (Oregon).

From here, turn onto Highway 46, and drive 9 miles just past Cleator Bend Campground, after which you need to take a right onto the single lane bridge crossing Breitenbush River. The Road has three forks — stay left a each fork until you end up at the center’s parking lot.
