We haven’t been to the Molalla Recreation Area for a while and my wife suggested we give this a try instead of hiking on forest roads. I’m so glad we came here to this trail rich area. There were about five vehicles parked at the Hardy Creek Horse Camp area but we only saw two groups of people the entire day!
We opted to head toward the Rim Trail and get some elevation. We then meandered around the trail system until we descended back to the Huckleberry Trail. Heading north we passed by Annie’s Cabin and a couple of nice water features.
It was getting late so we turned around and took the Huckleberry Trail back to our car. Such a nice area and very few people on the trail system. A great day to be out hiking!
