Off Trail  2014 – Memaloose and South Clackamas Rivers Part 2  [49]

2014 – Memaloose and South Clackamas Rivers Part 2

My second trip back to this area to again explore the old water works remnants along the Memaloose and South Clackamas rivers (see my first trip here). These remnants date back as far as 1915, and consist of large water pipes, valves, bridges, and best of all tunnels. I retraced my first route again, but this time making it to the top of the Upper South Clackamas Falls via the longest of the tunnels, and following the South Clackamas River all the way to its confluence with the Clackamas. As before, there are no official trails here, but for the most part the original pipe locations are fairly easy to follow.
