This is a wild river and it is beautifully preserved. The hiking along the river is some of our favorite terrain. Beautifully forested, soft duff trail right along the shore. Even if you don't fish ( and we don't) this is still a wonderful place...More

Hiking along the Metolius River after a light snowfall is magical. There is a nice out and back four mile walk starting at the Camp Sherman general store. Well marked paths. Great views of the forest and Black Butte.

The river is just gorgeous! The people are friendly as can be! So relaxing and enjoyable. I had three girl friends with me and they fell in love with Camp Sherman and the Metolius River too!

This water is too cold for swimming but is fabulous for viewing and fly fishing. It is mostly shallow which gives fly fisherman easy access. It changes along it's course with lots of ins and outs. There are numerous footbridges around too.

We hiked from the Canyon campground to the fish hatchery. It's an easy 5-mile round trip along a lovely river.

The parking lot at the headwaters has a paved path down to the river.
