Enjoyed a fun family hike. The trails were covered in snow but still walkable. It was icy and cold but looked like a winter wonderland. Such fun!

Beautiful trails with lots of variety. There's pavement, gravel, grass trails etc. A lot of options as to where to go, and it winds next to the river. It's lovely! I included a picture of the map so you guys can see the trail options etc.

This is an awesome hike with a little bit of history thrown in. Beautiful area with lots of trees and singing birds around you. The hike is listed as moderate, but I found it to be easy. I did the educational 2.5 mile loop then wound my way over to the mission trail. Don't leave without seeing the ghost structure of the mission. Will definitely do this hike again.

Nice stroll with the family. 4 year was tired about half way through. Saw and heard lots of birds! All had a good time. Except my shoulders.

Trail was super mucky. Would have been more fun during summer months when things dry out. Also trail was super easy, didn't even get a little sweaty.

Nice, easy flat trails. There are numerous tree identification signs for you to get a sense for the local trees. Also you will see the largest Black Cottonwood tree in the nation, learn about the flood of 1861 that changed the course of the Williamette River and learn to look out for cougars! Yes, there have been cougar sighting in the park just two week ago (last sighted Sept 1, 2015) . So if you are hiking with younger kids keep them reasonably close. There is a small fee ($5) for day use. Also there is a group camp and horse trails.

Very generic Oregon park, but fun to take a bike ride on! The $5 fee doesn't seem worth it just to go biking, plus it's sort of out of the way of any major town.

Let me say though I didn't get to explore the park much, so there is probably more to offer that I didn't get to experience. Nice open areas. 3/5

We live a few miles away from this park, so it is fun to ride a bike to (great country roads), walk the loop, then ride home. Maybe a picnic lunch in between. A good bit of exercise and sun.
