Located 3 miles south of the Glen Avon Bridge, Molalla River Day-Use Site 4 is a great escape from the summer heat. This site is one of many places along the scenic route of the Molalla River Recreation Corridor.

The scenic undeveloped site with a beautiful swimming hole is easily accessible by a well-maintained trail at the turnout on South Molalla Forest Road.

The river banks are composed of pebbles and rock formations that partially line the large pool with beautiful clear green water. The hole is deep making this spot great for swimming and jumping from the flat underwater ledges. You should be careful if the river runs high and the current is fast. Moderate and advanced swimming skills are required. There are shallow spots for children.

The Molalla River Trail System combines 25 miles of trails of different levels of difficulty and is designated for mountain bikers, equestrians, and hikers.

Camping and fires are prohibited in the Molalla River Day Use Site 4. Camping, picnic sites, restrooms, and drinking water are available at campgrounds and recreation areas nearby.

There is no garbage service on this site. You should pack and carry out all your trash before leaving.
