Wolf Creek Flats

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Wolf Creek Flats in the winter (bobcat)


West of where Wolf Creek enters the Salmonberry River, the canyon widens and the Salmonberry spreads out, creating some languid pools in a shady alder flat. Hikers on the abandoned rail track can bushwhack down the slope about 100 feet to access the flat. In summer, the pools are great for taking a dip. Coho salmon spawn here in late fall.

Wolf Creek Flats are about five miles west of the Cochran Trailhead. The river bars here were wiped clean by the December 2007 storm but a forest of red alder is beginning to regenerate on them.
