Beautiful heavily forested area with lots of fall foliage near the river. Saw tons of deer at the "elk meadow " portion which was a nice treat. Secluded paths with great views are a nice change from the heavily trafficked trails near the city or Hood. Bathrooms still closed $5 entrance fee Gate closes at 6:10pm as of today

Hiking

It was lovely. The river beach and creeks were great. After you cross the creek on the logs, the trail narrows quite a bit and there’s a downed tree we had to climb under. A little bit further down, there’s no way to cross the creek unless you walk through the water. I imagine if the water level were lower you’d be able to get over. Ended up being 3.5 miles out and back. Great fall hike and hardly anyone on the trail in the morning on a Saturday.

Trail was a little obstructed in some places because of downed trees. Still a nice quiet stroll through a pretty forest. Definitely download the map before you start, the trail is a little hard to follow in some places and there’s no reception. Signage was not the greatest.

It was definitely nice but nothing super exciting in my opinion. It was easy to follow the trail - you won’t get lost.

Trail is great. Beach is amazing. The flock of bros listening to dub step kind of kills it though.

Hiking

Worst trail marking, especially for a park with a $5 per day fee. We got off course a couple times, but didn't mind the extra length. There are lots of distracting footpaths & shortcuts that are not on the map, so it felt like we had to constantly check the map to stay on track. Disappointingly, we didn't find a clear starting point for the far westside trail; signage would be nice. Part of the trail went up a steep, rocky (kinda slippery rocky) service road that was a bit tedious and would have been better as a switchback. Good location for getting a longer, several-hour hike in without much backtracking. There are numerous points at which tiny streams cross the trail in well-built, cool-looking stone gutters. Nice river views. Yes the bathrooms are closed but there are several port-a-potties available. Lots of people in the picnic locations and along the shore of course. There was still plenty of parking. We passed 11 people over the course of several hours.

Hiking

Nice easy walking through shady, pretty, old-growth forest and later along the river. Parts of the trail parallel the park road but very few cars were on it on this weekday hike. I didn’t encounter many other people at all on the trail, but there were pockets of people enjoying the river near the campground and day-use areas. Overall very quiet and not at all crowded. I took it easy and with a few intentional and a few mistaken detours it was about 8 miles. Nice way to spend an afternoon.

HikingFee

After you pay the fee get a map at the front to help you navigate the place. I connected a bunch of side/service trails/road to the main paths for a good 3 hour hike with plenty of incline. A mix of forest, meadow, and pretty Sandy River views make this a great park. Bathrooms are currently closed.

Great!

This is moderate to hard if you are a beginner hiker. It has a couple of areas with a bit of a steep ncline. Great hiking and the Sandy River is nice. i think it's close to 4 miles.

Perfect hike for a family. Great sandy beach for a picnic and time to play in the water. A rope swing to jump in too! A bit steep on the way back so save some energy!

Definitely lacking in signage but the trails were well maintained. We went around the upper loop twice for a little extra mileage, and because it was such a strenuous climb up to the top.

Hiking

The hike is probably longer than 3.7 miles, and honestly the elevation gain and unrelenting steepness of the hike out is a lot harder than a moderate hike usually is. The beach is definitely worth it, but be advised that it’s harder than the mileage and rating suggests, so pack light and wear something other than sandals.

Easy trail for the most part but really bad, to not signposting for how many forks in the roads there are. Make sure to get a map when you enter!

Fun to explore the other side of Oxbow. Be ready for a tough elevation - it’s a lot coming back to the parking lot. Turnoff for the gravel road was a little hidden as it looks like only a private road. Fun little challenge overall!

Meh. Well maintained but very crowded. Very few people were wearing masks and there were off leash dogs everywhere. Plus the beach area was like MTV Spring Break with lots of music and bros drinking white claws. Lotter was also prevalent.

HikingOver grown

Little forest walk into a beach area on the Sandy river. The hike out is uphill so be prepared; some passerby’s were wearing flip flops which are not a smart option! There is a lot of underbrush and some bugs. We got there on a Sunday at 10 and left at 12:20- there were no other hikers when we arrived and tons of groups as we left. Remember to wear a mask and leave space between hikers!
