Tom Sawyer takes you through different sections of trails, from a flowy river riverside ride, to pump trail through an emerald green forest, a ridge line up above the river and then a jump line. This trail winds along the West bank of the Quinsam River. Originally built through 2008. This is a low impact trail, so expect to see the ferns creeping in during the summer months. A section has recently been logged. Much work has been done recently to get it back in shape. The North end of Tom Sawyer has an excellent jump line and you finish with a big smile pasted on your face.

Access Info

At the South end the trail head is on the north side of the Elk River Mainline after crossing the Quinsam River logging bridge. At the North end it enters on your right just before the Salmon Hatchery.
