Quiet hike in old woods along the Willamette River You start from Takena Landing Pakr and walk along the Willamette River passing by the Golf Club of Oregon, under the railroad tressel, and through a canopy of trees and vines. The trails hugs the river most of the way, making a small loop at the end before you head back. Several places along the way give you a beautiful view of the river. Trail is packed dirt, will be muddy when it rains.
Pretty. Good for a run. Nothing spectacular. Though would go there again.
Nice to walk for a few minutes nothing special
A nice and peaceful short trail (
Sweet little walk with my fiancé, relaxing and easy! Not much to see but a fun time together. Went back with our bikes and that was fun :)
A little underwhelming, but a nice walk along the river :)
A nice spot for a run. Living in Albany, there aren't very many trails to run near by.
Nice day hike, mostly flat and all inclines are gradual. It's great for a hot summer day because there is a lot of shade from the trees.
Great little path! One of my favorites for walking your dog. Though use caution a majority of people using this path do not leash their dogs.
short and simple..follows the river.
Great little walk along the Willamette River. In 2011 the city added native planting after some infrastructure work. very nice spot Easy hike. Out and back.
This is a wonderful day hike. The reviewers about the trees and blackberries need to take a botany class . we enjoyed the pines, ash, maples and more besides the cottonwoods. The trails to the river are wonderful in late fall when the river is low. This trail is smooth, level and excellent for small kids and elder adults besides bikers. it is well worth it so close to town
I hike this trail regularly, throughout the year. It's actually about 3.6 miles, from parking space to parking space, instead of the 4.6 published here. There's a good layer of wood chips and gravel, so it's only really impassable when the river water is completely over the trail.
Along the trail are HUGE cottonwood trees and blackberries in the summer. Also keep your eyes open for giant banana slugs and shelled snails. An osprey family occupies the nest on one of the trestle supports.
It's an amazingly peaceful trail for being within the city limits.
