Little Sandy River is close to Ainsworth State Park which is a pretty spot, and going for a hike on the Big Bend Trail is always a great adventure. These mountains rock, just explore all the cool stuff to do in the Central Cascade Range. You undeniably should check out Benson State Park if you're here at Little Sandy River, and people from Brightwood love to come here. This is such a great river.
