Nice walk on a beautiful day. Lots of steps to test your heart! Where’s the advertised volcano?

This is a great paved urban trail. The views of the salmon creek are beautiful close to 36th. It’s a good spot for a run with an option to make it a loop off the paved trail.

Sketchy. My boyfriend and I walked about half a mile in and we didn’t feel comfortable continuing because of how uncared for the space is. It was also right by the freeway.

Easy. Very moving memorial.

Peaceful and solitude while walking through Crosses trail. Dogs arent allowed to the top but are welcome to walk along bottom trails

Open space to walk on paths. Beautiful scenery throughout park. Blackberries to be plucked. Parking was full in first lot, but drove to reservoir area and took in the view

Description says loop. however, the bike path portion that makes the loop is closed towards sellwood. so I turned back and got turned around, they have done some new upgrades that stabilized the decent from the parking lot. Trail is in good shape for the most part. I like that the hiking section is off limits to cyclists. our hike was almost 4 miles, with the extra re-route. (that matters to a 8 month corgi)

Decent place to wander with family or pooches. I'll come back with my father who is getting too old for climbs but still appreciates being in nature because you can drive all the way to the top.

Much of this trail is paved and level, making it accessible to those in wheelchairs or other mobility devices.

The western paved portion is not so hot, especially on a nice day that brings out many cyclists. One can avoid that by going out and back on the east side. Good for waterfowl in the winter, but muddy.

If anything, this is more of a nature walk than a hike, but well worth it. If you do the round trip, it's about 6 miles, which is a decent calorie burner even without any noticeable elevation gain. But if you were coming here, it wouldn't be for that, it'd be for the wonderful walk or bike ride on a paved trail that parallels the path of Salmon Creek. While you're not directly alongside the river at all times, it's always within earshot and accessed by walking a few yards down one of the dozens of side trails that offshoot from the main trail. You'll walk through forest, field and everything in between. Great way and place to relax amongst the elements. I'll be back.

beautiful view. uphill, downhill, and flat terrain. easy to get to if you're in Portland. trail, stair, or road options. very dog friendly. usually occupied by a lot of other people. not a secluded area at all. great for all levels.

Saw ducks, blue herons, cranes, hawks, several varieties of small birds, deer and nutria. The four hundred year old oaks are amazing.

Nice wide open asphalt path, about the width of a car. Don’t know how they get 11 miles. I started at the parking lot, went to the end of the path and back and it was about 2 miles. Maybe there are 11 miles of trail total

I was out at 6 AM, after the sun came up and did not feel quite safe with the folks who appeared to live there tucked into corners of the park

It’s a beautiful trail, and I would do it again, but not do it alone at a deserted hour.

Great paved trail for an afternoon stretch with kids, elderly, wheelchair bound, trail running. There are a lot of side trails to get peeks of the creek. Because of the general east-to-west orientation of the creek the early morning /late afternoon are the most dramatic “golden hours” of shadow and light.

awesome trail. great to go with your dog. big open meadows, lots of side trails to the water. we went during a week day morning, it wasn't busy. the views of the Columbia River are fantastic. great spots for picnics.

Super familiar park for me. It's not a place to get solitude, but it is a great place to hang out or get exercise. The trails are varied, and some are less populated. There's often some kind of event going on, and there are many areas for kids to enjoy as well as adults. Though I've probably hiked every trail over the years, now that I have a GPS, I guess I'll do it all again while painting cyan lines on the map.

Great mountain bike trail for beginners.

Nice and easy blacktop great for family and elders...

All concrete, nice city views but not very pretty along the trail itself. East side very noisy from freeway traffic

Easy to follow, year round, dog friendly, can be steep in certain areas but very family friendly. Nice view of Portland at the summit, along with a basketball court, playgrounds and restrooms.

My second visit, walking the loop around Oaks Bottom Lake, this time with Mom. We saw tons of wildlife, and it was a perfect weather day.

I love this place! The nude beach and all! This is a family oriented nude beach, no hanky panky there are kids here and respectable people enjoying the sandbar, lunch and waving as the ships go by! There are multiple put in areas for boats, large parking areas, bathrooms, and the river! You pay a small fee coming in, but its worth it if youre not here to trash the place!

Most definitely relaxing, easy hiking, family friendly, and it's pretty amazing to see their old growth forest, the amazing HUGE trees!

I almost always see wildlife here including: deer, rabbits, squirrels, heron, otters, beaver, osprey, and many other types of birds.

We parked at Sellwood Park and started from there. The beginning was ok - saw lots of birds - got a good pic of geese with their goslings. However, it ends up on a paved road (Spring Water Corridor) and we walked that back with bikers blazing by us....very boring and even though it was maybe 3 miles, it felt like 10 because of the walk back. I think though this would be a good beginner, introductory hike for someone new to it...better than sitting indoors!

It’s a nice walk, I prefer a trail that is more out in nature.
