Located inside of the Willamette National Forest and along the McKenzie River is the small town of Blue River. The town is most known for a small gold rush of its own when gold was found in the river here. This small town offers a few hiking trails for Fido to explore with you, but there are no veterinarians in town. Luckily, there is one you can go visit in the neighboring town of Leaburg.
Take a hike along the Terwilliger Hot Springs Trail for a nice and easy hike with your furry pal. The hike is 0.8-miles long with a 91-foot elevation gain on an out and back route. While hiking, you will pass a lake where you and Fido can cool off, but make sure your dog stays on a leash the entire time you are out on the trail. This trail is perfect for any skill level of hiker and their pup.
The Indigo Cafe is the perfect spot to stop into for a bite to eat with your pup. This vintage food cart and internet cafe serves a variety of food including rice bowls and wraps, plus they have smoothies and milkshakes to end with a sweet treat. Their outdoor patio welcomes your dog to join you and they even offer free WIFI.
Your pup will have an amazing time hiking the trails and exploring Blue River with you.
