Hike of the month:
Drift Creek Falls is a short family friendly hike between Salem and Lincoln City. It is 3 miles round trip, gaining 525 feet of elevation and the trail takes you through a stunning coastal forest with moss covered trees, and across the longest and tallest suspension bridge in Oregon. This hike is great fall folks of all ages and activity levels and during the winter the ferns and mosses are lush and bright green, and the waterfall 66 ft. tall waterfall is raging!
