The Loveridge Snake River Hike was quite nice for a 2 hour door-to-door outing. Located on the south side of the Snake River the hike follows the Oregon Trail Road through BLM lands. Clocked in at just under 2.8 miles and 1 hour of walking, my dog Addie and I enjoyed the views around the Snake River and an impressive number of birds. Addie enjoyed the birds much more than I did.

Considering the assumed heavy fishing pressure this area gets, I was quite surprised by how clean and trash free the hike was. The main dirt road is likely a good place to hike even during wet periods but getting off on one of the 5 roads that head to the river? I'd say it would get quite muddy.

While hiking off trail, I found one Oregon Trail marker. I did not see any evidence of the trail like I've seen in other places but it was in a marshy area with heavy undergrowth. From what I've read, there are some easily viewable rutted trails from our past on the east side of Highway 51.
