The Molalla Recreation Corridor is about 10 to 15 miles south-east of the town of Molalla, Oregon, in the western foothills of the Cascade Range mountains. NOTE: Due to the high canyon walls, cell phones do NOT usually work in the Molalla River corridor, and GPS reception is unreliable in some areas. The region consists of old logging roads, so automated maps (including Google Maps, Mapquest and GPS devices) may not work very well. These map links will assist you, but please plan ahead.
