2 Reviews of Snag Creek Trailhead Dispersed
River sites are great, but they're limited

I wanted to add videos of the river sites to my other review for this site, but the website wouldn't let me - anyway, the hike has 3 river sites about 1 mile in from the trailhead and they are beautiful and right at the bend of the river. After there, there's not much camping unless you were to go down the PCT further than we had wanted to (we just wanted to go to the viewpoint, about 10 miles further). But for camping, stop after the first mile (or you may end up camping in the trail..).

Beginner Backpacking close to Portland

We wanted a beginner backpacking trip (10 to 12 miles round trip) close to town - this one is a pretty hike with views at the end (theoretically, we saw fog). We passed up the best camping spots because they were too early in the trail (at the creek) and ended up setting up camp in wider part of the trail (about 3 miles in, after night had fallen). The other hikers were friendly, though, and didn't seem to mind us making camp pretty much anywhere. In our situation the camping was definitely not the main event! We came for the hike and slept along the way. The camp spots at the creek would have been quite nice for camping itself though.
