Great hike to do with the young ones. Lots of exploring options.

Oxbow regional park does NOT allow dogs. I had the dog-friendly filter on and we drove all the way out only not to be let in. What a hassle.

Quite a treat for being so close to the urban area, short drive. A great deal of variety of trails offered not to mention other activities.

Smooth sailing on the way there (mostly downhill) but the trek up is intense! Totally worth it though! The beach is quiet and dog friendly!

Chose to do this as a hike. I wish the description mentioned more about how this is really a 45 minute hike down to a river that during the summer time has a nice beach and hang out area below. If I were to go again, I would bring some flip flops and a picnic blanket. It seemed like everyone else around me got the memo and several carried down coolers to enjoy the summer day on the beach. It's a great place to hang out, but not the hardest hike.

I guess everybody's definition of 'overgrown' is different, but while the trail might be a little narrower and have a few more branches that reach into the trail, and there might be a few logs that have fallen, it felt to me like a less popular trail that is just trafficked. It is totally passable as long as you can sit on a log and pivot to the other side.

If wanting to add to the hike, during the summer time you can easily do a river walk if you have the right shoes.

Ugh. What a disaster. Overgrown with too many trees and ferns and spider webs. When I go out in nature I expect not to be touched by nature. Unless it's on my terms. Super muddy too. Regrettably, I stuck it out until the end and was met with a disappointing "beach" with practically no views and cold water.
