Hackleman Old Growth Trail #3411

Two short loop trails take you through a classic old growth stand of Douglas-Fir, Western Red Cedar, and Western Hemlock. You may feel dwarfed by some trees, several are more than 500 years old, and have survived floods, fire, and wind storms.

One loop winds along Hackleman Creek, home to the Hackleman trout, a subspecies of cutthroat trout. The other loop continues along a segment of the Old Santiam Wagon Road is designed  for wheelchair access. Please note that the wheelchair access is considered difficult due to grade.

An interpretive brochure, available at the trailhead, challenges you to think about the complexity of old growth forests.
