What to see and do
At the hatchery: During the peak of spawning activity, beginning in early November, visitors can see adult coho. The facility has a small inside display area. A trail runs through the grounds, offering a nature hike as well as fishing access to the Sandy River.
Nearby: Mount Hood National Forest, which is the location of Mount Hood and Multnomah Falls, offers camping, hiking, river running, skiing and wildlife viewing.
Take Hwy. 26 east from Portland toward Mt. Hood to Sandy. Go through the town of Sandy to the last traffic light. Turn left onto Ten Eyck Road. Approximately 1/2 mile down the hill is a very sharp lefthand turn. Turn left onto SE Fish Hatchery Road and proceed for one mile to the hatchery.
