Looks like a great trail for kids, but we only got a few minutes in when we were swarmed by mosquitos! I didn’t listen at first to the kids complaints until I saw two on my three olds face! We will try again in the fall when mosquitos have hopefully died out.

Just a nice simple walking trail alongside the Long Tom River, upstream from the Fern Ridge Reservoir. Parking requires a state Fish & Wildlife parking permit, but there is nearby parking. There is a portable toilet in the parking lot. This trail is flat, shaded, but well maintained. There are a couple of side trails, and a loop at the end. Out and back is about a mile.
