This small state park is a great place to have a picnic or fish the Luckiamute River. It's out of the usual travel corridor, so it sees little traffic.
Very muddy in winter months.
Small, fun trail; my dog and I loved roaming it. Beautiful autumn setting. Would definitely go there again.
This trail is off the beaten path, in a pretty little area. It's very easy and a very short trail. A little bit of downhill hiking, if you want to go down to the river. It would be a great place to take a picnic and have a bit of peace and quiet.
