Briefly about the general area:
Milo McIver State Park is a charming place any time of year, and on a nice day you can take a hike along the Pine Crest Trail. This site, the Central Cascade Range, has so much outdoors amusing things. Places like Bonnie Lure State Park are nice to visit, and people from Estacada love to come here. This river has it all. Nothing beats kicking back at Sundial Beach. All the water falling down from the sky makes Clear Creek a wet place. December is the month that gets the most rain, and the driest month is July.
