In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.

The “Old” Salmon River Trail follows the Salmon River in lush old-growth forest. While the grade is mostly gentle, there are some short hills. The trail comes up onto the road at a few points. During winter and spring seasons, be prepared to ford a couple creeks.

The trailhead is located at 70220 E. Highway 26, Zigzag, Oregon 97049
