This hike was picked out by my friend, Amanda. We left Portland around noon on a Saturday. Sarah and Dade also joined us. The sky loomed ahead of us as we continued west toward our destination. It was raining when we got to the trailhead so we went into the educational center. The center is well done. There's a large fire place, several craft stations fro kids and a movie playing in a little theater that talks about the 6 year curse of the Tillamook Forest. We spent some time there and then headed up the trail. The whole Wilson River trail goes for about 20 miles. We did a 6 mile portion and chose a bridge as the turnaround point. Probably won't do this part of the Wilson River again, but I'd be interested in seeing what other parts look like.
I moved to the Pacific Northwest in August of 2012. I quickly identified myself as a hiker. I want to document my experiences so that I can refer to them for myself and others to provide the best hiking experience. I also hope to learn more about hiking from others comments and recommendations.
