Take this interpretive trail around the refuge for great views of a variety of bird species and plenty of sings to read This urban wildlife refuge just miles outside of Portland is the home to a variety of wildlife species. The trail you will follow is in great shape with plenty of signs to read about what you are looking at!

Fun walk for when you need to get out into some fresh air, yet not looking to climb a mountain.
Definitely family friendly.

Went out there to get off the pavement and get a trail run in. Sign right when I got out of the car read, "no running on trails." Bummer! Guess they don't want fast moving people to spook the wildlife. This is not a place for trail running!

Not bad trail. It's much more of a spectator's hike. I'm a hobby photographer so I enjoyed walking it slowly looking for some neat photo opportunities. There are a lot of birds including bald eagles, some nutria and other small animals like rabbits. It's enjoyable if you're not looking for any challenge at all.

Unless you're a bird watcher, this trail is kind of boring. It is flat and exposed, meandering through marshland. We went on a hot summer day, and I don't think that was the best time to go, as the water level was very low, the birds weren't very active, and it was quite hot with no shade. I did go one other time when the Canada Geese were landing one beautiful fall evening at sunset, but on that occasion I did not walk the trails, only observed the geese landing on the marsh water.

Nice quiet walk. Too flat to be hiking.

A nice little outing through the marsh and a slow Tualatin River flow, I recommend going in the spring or fall.
