Hearst Lodge Trail

This hike takes you from the suspension bridge at Salmon River all the way to Hearst Lodge. With breathtaking views, swimming holes, and historic relevance, this hike is one you don’t want to miss. While it may be listed as easy, there are some difficult aspects like a 750 ft elevation gain and 6.28 km loop. So, be ready for a few steep sections and some downed trees.


Hearst Lodge, built in 1961 as a bed and breakfast, was named for William Randolph Hearst, who built a sawmill at Salmon River and harvested the trees in the area. It became a top location for those looking to enjoy their weekend fishing. This beautiful spot welcomed some big names such as Frank Sinatra, Donald Sutherland, and Prime Minister Diefenbaker.
