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.
