Gibbons Creek Wildlife Art Trail is a 2.8 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Washougal, WA that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and birding and is accessible year-round.
An great location for a walk, with many opportunities for views, photos, and enjoying wildlife. Gravel paths make for easy travel through this gem at the entrance to the Columbia Gorge Scenic Area. Teeming with wildlife at the eastern edge of Camas and Washougal, Washington, the 1,049-acre Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge presents a fantastic opportunity to connect with nature through hiking and wildlife observation. Over 200 of the 300 bird species seen in Clark County have been observed on this relatively small refuge, making Steigerwald Lake an excellent birding destination.
What a great Labor Day hike got there a little past sunrise watched four Hawks playing way out in the field watched deer grazing 20 yards from us. Best picture of the day was a bobcat near the Lewis and Clark trail dike area he came out of the trees and sat in the grass for about 30 seconds and then ran off into the woods we got three nice pictures before it disappeared we will be going again or a sunset walk
I love this trail ...come early in heat really small amount of shade..no dogs as to not disturb the wildlife. My pet peeve perfect for photographers but gravel trails make for a hard shot one photographer I spoke to said it was like walking in potato chips lol otherwise beautiful, peaceful hike.
Easy going trail that is family friendly. I've used this trail multiple times if I want an easy going walk or a quick bike ride.
This is a fantastic spot to go if you'd like to have a quick walk with the chance to see some wildlife. It's a regular occurrence to see many types of birds, turtles, rabbits, and other wildlife throughout the park. Give yourself about an hour and change to walk the park, more if you'd like to stop and take some photos. You'll see some burned trees at the beginning of the trail that are remnants of a recent field fire, but the park has recovered quite well.
