You can also explore the many swimming holes of the nearby Salmon River, which flows from the Marble Mountain and Russian and Trinity Wilderness areas.

The Orleans Ranger Station is also just 3/4 miles down the road and offers a variety of maps and information. It's a twenty minute drive to the closest wilderness trailhead. A longer drive will take you to high elevation trailheads leading to pristine mountain lakes.

Blythe was an amazing host! We had an outstanding weekend on the ranch. The cabins were great, and the beach was amazing. The whole experience was better than we could have hoped for. This place is a gem. –Jon, Airbnb
Absolutely refreshing experience to spend a few days in this remote jewel of the six rivers national forest… kind and courteous hosts and incredibly relaxing hideaway spot laced with gorgeous views, landscapes, hiking trails and swimming holes on the beautiful rivers. It was nothing short of an awesomely rejuvenating experience. IK, Tripadvisor
The place is amazing, we were in a comfy little cabin right next to the river. A couple minutes’ walk down to a sandy beach where we could swim. This place is magical! -Eric, Airbnb
Loved, loved the Sandy Bar Ranch. It's tucked way back into the woods which was exactly what we were looking for on our trip up the coast. Blythe was great, the cabin was clean, the dogs are friendly, the view was magnificent. The experience was very peaceful. Would totally stay here again. –Damon, Airbnb
