River Trail / Mom’s

River Trail, Mom’s Loop

A nice snowshoe / backcountry ski trail loop that starts from the back corner of the Salmon Ridge SnoPark parking lot. It makes a great introductory ‘adventure’ loop. It’s level, but twists and turns through the trees and out onto the river bars. I recommend going out on the River Trail (0.9 miles) and then back on the more direct Mom’s (0.5 miles). The little ‘short-cut’ where the River Trail ends and the map shows a connection to Mom’s got closed out with a couple of giant trees toppled over. Just turn left and go down to the end of Mom’s. It’s just before the main trail goes up a long hill and is well marked.
