Row River Trail
January 16, 2003
Row River Trail, located off Mosby Creek Road in Cottage Grove, is paved
and tame, but it certainly doesn’t lack appeal.
Besides Mosby Creek Covered Bridge, Dorena Lake and Row Point with its native
plants, is the 150-foot-high Dorena Dam.
We were surprised that the dam’s earthfill structure and concrete spillway
were completely visible due to low water levels.
On this particular Thursday, we enjoyed especially gentle winter weather and lunch
at dry picnic tables.
We walked as far as Rat Creek Road—about 4.5 miles—before heading back
to Mosby Creek Trailhead.
