This all-year trail through the Clackamas River’s canyon features hidden beaches, mossy forests, and whitewater viewpoints. A highway unobtrusively follows the river’s far shore, making it easy to arrange a car shuttle and hike the 7.8-mile trail one way. If you can’t find a second car to shuttle, try a short walk to the trail’s first beach or a moderate hike to Pup Creek Falls.

From Interstate 205 near Oregon City, take exit...
