Cable Creek Fish Pass Wildlife Viewing Site

A 300-foot boardwalk leads visitors to the Cable Creek Fish Pass providing viewing of the prolific salmon run during late summer and fall. Special Features: The trail was constructed as a Youth Conservation Corps project during the mid-1980's. It leads hikers through a spruce hemlock forest to Cable Creek, where a fish pass was designed to extend salmon habitat in the creek. The salmon run attracts abundant wildlife including, bear, eagle, and even elusive wolves. There are also salmon lifecycle interpretive signs along the trail. Additional attractions in the area include the Trocadero Trail.
