Take a walk or ride around this historic 615 acre park along the Willamette River. This park is where the first provisional government of Oregon was formed in 1843. The park has a lot to offer for everyone including wetland areas, a butte (La Butte), picnic areas, disc golf, camping areas, and a variety of trails for both hiking and biking as well as.

Not a bad trail. I biked a lot of it. Considering it's length, I would suggest doing that if you're looking for a short trip into nature. It's a short drive from Portland and a nice area. Not a lot to see if you spend your time hiking it in my opinion.

The walk from the park to the historic Butteville Store is very pleasant. It is quite easy, as the trail is paved and the only incline is on the return from the Butteville Store back to the trail. There are pleasant views of the Willamette River along the way and lush green forests with huge trees. There are also more trails within the park, again very easy with little or no incline and well-maintained trails.

Regarding the Townsite Trail near the actual park, I've always enjoyed this quick and easy walk with my dog. I let him off leash often and let him scout a few feet ahead of me. However, the mosquitos are bad at certain times of year - wear sleeves, scarf, and bug spray.

There are lots of campground trails to explore, and a fun general store at the end of a long hike from the entrance. it was a nice time.

Don't waste your time on this one. I wouldn't even call it a real good trail. ends in the torn bushes.
