The Middle Fork Trail (#3609) is an easy to moderate 15 mile hike. This 15 mile section of trail extends along the Middle Fork of the Willamette River. FS Road 21 offers several access points to the Middle Fork Trail which is an easy hike or fun bike ride. Paralleling the river, it offers access for great fishing, as well as wildlife viewing. Keep a sharp lookout for deer, elk, kingfishers, mallards, herons, beaver and lizards. Dainty spring flowers and bright autumn colors add a seasonal delight, requiring more than one trip a year to fully enjoy this trail.
