In 1989, alarmed by the prospect of development destroying the scenic wooded hillsides surrounding their National Historic Landmark City, the citizens of Jacksonville, Oregon rallied to form the non-profit Jacksonville Woodlands Association. During the past 2 decades the Woodlands Association has preserved 22 parcels of forested open space (320 acres) and has constructed 18 miles of connecting interpretive and recreational trails surrounding 70% of the town's historic district.

This trail was really pretty, took a couple of hours to complete, and had a nice variety of nature, but we were pretty disappointed that you could hear the sounds from the busy road nearby the majority of the trail. It definitely took away from our enjoyment of the scenery to hear cars rushing by.

It's so easy to just hike up and around, taking a different trail each time.

the trail I was on was easy with good tree cover, finding the entrance was confusing though, l expected the typical day use trail head parking Google directed me to Jacksonville public parking and the trail started from the britt house which I wasn't expecting. but the walk was nice along a creek with wild flowers now in bloom

The trails are easy-moderate. It seems to be a popular area for mountain biking as well. There are a variety of trails making it a perfect place for a full day of hiking.

Great spot for a lot of easily accessible trails in a small space. We hiked a portion of all the trails, and we didn't find any of them particularly challenging. They are great for short day hikes, a nature walk or run on a weekend, or a scenic dog walk. Very well maintained and well marked. Nice views at Panorama Point. You'll absolutely hear road noise or household noise (at one point we chuckled from overhearing one side of an amusing phone conversation a woman was having in a nearby back yard), but these trails aren't meant to offer a wilderness experience. Overall--a fun day hike that you can make as long or as short as you want. With so many intersecting trails, I bet a person could hike 25 miles on 'em if they tried!

The Zigler trail, Britt Ridge trail are pretty flat. Jackson creek is extremely steep. The views are best at panorama point. The Rich Gulch has some challenging spots for the beginner. I think these trails are pretty nice. They are short, alot of them connect. I always take a backpack with tons of water and some snacks and just sit out at the top. =D You can hear road noise of a few of the trails.
