The recreation sites were identified as a priority project in the Molalla River-Table Rock Recreation Area Management Plan. For more information, follow the link on the right.
Enjoy a scenic drive along the Molalla River and enjoy a wide range of activities. This recreation area offers easy river access and opportunities for picnicking, swimming, camping and fishing. Hike, ride a horse or ride a mountain bike on the Molalla River shared-use trail system.
The trail system is an extensive network of forested non-motorized trails that offers varying levels of difficulty and scenic glimpses of the Molalla River. Development and management of the 25-mile trails system is part of a cooperative effort with Molalla RiverWatch, a local non-profit and several hiking, biking and equestrian groups.
Camping within the corridor is limited to designated sites only. Please use restrooms and fire rings. Trail maps are available at the Salem District office.
The Molalla River-Table Rock Recreation Area Management Plan was completed in July 2011. For more information, click on the link to the right or contact Adam Milnor, Outdoor Recreation Planner. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or call: 503-315-5935
