Welcome to our one-night backpacking trip on the Salmon River Trail in the Salmon Huckleberry Wilderness! We take you on a breathtaking journey through one of Oregon's most beautiful wilderness areas. The Salmon River Trail is known for its stunning scenery, lush forests, and abundant wildlife, but it's important to be aware of potential dangers. In 2018, a tragic cougar attack claimed the life of a woman on this trail. While the risk of a cougar attack is low, it's crucial to be prepared and informed when exploring the wilderness. We also want to caution viewers about the safety of the parking lots in the area, which are notorious for break-ins. If possible, it's best to arrange a ride to the trailhead. Despite the potential risks, the Salmon River Trail offers an unforgettable wilderness experience that's sure to leave you in awe. Follow us as we hike along the scenic river, cross babbling streams, and bask in the tranquility of the great outdoors.
