Savage River Loop Trail
This scenic easy hike along the river is good for those on a tight schedule or families with young children. There's even a 0.8-kilometer wheelchair accessible stretch. The 3.2-kilometer (two-mile) loop begins at mile 15. Head upstream and across a wooden bridge before returning on the opposite side. Thanks to its mostly flat (less than 5 percent grade) trail, the river canyon path is considered an easy to moderate walk and takes on average about an hour and a half to complete. On both sides of the path, there are nice views of the mountain slopes and the Savage River, plus the occasional bear, caribou or lynx.
