Butte Creek Falls - Santiam State Forest
I call bs on those who say Salem has nothing to offer! Andrew and I are finding Salem has lots to offer. We didn't hike much this summer...it was more kayaking and camping. But, now that the weather is crappy...we're hiking. I know. But at least we're still getting out some!
Anyways, if you haven't made use of the Santiam State Forest you are really missing out. Check out their website and see the recreational opportunities that await. Butte Creek Falls is just one such opportunity. They categorize it as difficult...probably because it's steep in parts and can have a lot of slippery leaves. However, it's only 1.5 miles and has wonderful views.
Bailey thought it was great as well!
