Area Status: Open
Experience open mountain meadows and heavily forested areas on this 8 mile trail that begins at the Hebo Lake Day Use site (at Hebo Lake Campground) and ends at South Lake Dispersed Area. The meadows in the Mt. Hebo Area are home to the Oregon silverspot butterfly, a sensitive species.
Native Americans and early settlers used this trail to travel from the Willamette Valley to the Pacific Coast. The trail runs over the top of Mt. Hebo, providing wonderful views of the Pacific Ocean. Sections of the trail are located in the Mt. Hebo Special Interest Area.
You can access the trail at Hebo Lake Day Use, South Lake Dispersed Area, or at the horse trailer parking area off of Forest Road 14, 0.6 miles east of Hebo Lake Campground.
Camping is prohibited within 200 feet of the trail and within the open meadows in the Mt. Hebo Special Interest Area.
