Trail Description: Hiking trails run both north (downstream) or south along the Metolius from Wizard Falls Fish Hatchery. Any distance from 0 to 10 miles may be hiked by following the same trail out and back. A hike upstream along the west bank leads to the confluence of the Canyon Creek Campground is a spectacular sight.<\/p>\r\n

From the Hatchery a 6.5 mile loop can be accomplished by hiking downstream to Lower Bridge, crossing the river, and returning on the opposite bank. This loop offers a combination of riverside and forest settings. Osprey nests and a beaver dam may be seen along the way.<\/p>\r\n

The first users of forest trails along the river were Indians. It was they who gave the river its name - Metolius. Some say the name means \"white fish\", others say it means \"stinking water\" or \"spawning salmon\". In any case, the name of the river makes reference to its outstanding fishery. Salmon from the Pacific Ocean spawned in the Metolius and its tributaries before dams obstructed their path. The river is now host to rainbow, brook, brown and bull trout; whitefish and kokanee.<\/p>\r\n

Restroom facilities and water are available at Wizard Falls Fish Hatchery. The trail leaves the river near some private property downstream from the fish hatchery. Please respect the property owner's privacy and stay outside fence lines.<\/p>","post_name":"metolius-river-trail","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.5223","lng":"-121.632","distance":"0.6","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/hiking\/metolius-river-trail\/","terms":"a Hiking<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"6755","post_title":"Pioneer Ford Campground","post_content":"Located on the Metolius River, six miles north of Camp Sherman Store the Pioneer Ford Campground offers 18 RV\/Trailer\/Tent sites and two tent only sites with vault toilets, piped water and access to fishing and trails.","post_name":"pioneer-ford-campground","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.5527","lng":"-121.622","distance":"1.8","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/camping-recreation\/fishing\/hiking\/pioneer-ford-campground\/","terms":"a Hiking<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"6988","post_title":"Lower Bridge Campground","post_content":"Located on the Metolius River, seven miles north of Camp Sherman Store the Lower Bridge Campground offers twelve campsites with a vault toilet, and piped water.
