In 2005 Woodpecker Loop trail was recognized as a National Recreation Trail. This loop trail begins and ends at the parking lot. The trail begins in a oak woodland habitat and then climbs slightly to an overlook that allows exceptional views of the valley and the Cascade Range. Here you also get a good view of Bald Top, which is a native oak savannah habitat. The trail continues on into a forest dominated by Douglas fir. As the trail drops down you start to see mature maples and evidence of past logging practices. This trail has multiple interpretive signs about the birds and wildlife you may see on the walk, including a lot about Woodpeckers.
