Very nice walk

A great small interpretive and visitor's center. I've been coming here for years. the staff and volunteers and are easily accessible on the trails. There is a shorter year round path and longer summer/early fall only extended trail. No inclines so this path is great for people with disabilities and young children. I've even seen parents pushing strollers on this trail. Lots of birds and other wildlife and river views in some parts.

various easy trails depending on time of year. lots of wild life to be seen.

It was nice. Super super easy. Couple good stops to watch the river. Bathroom just a little shy of half way. Good city hike. It’s paved almost the whole way.

Good day for a walk on easy trails.

Beautiful. Lots of nature sounds, mostly cool, easy but not too easy. Wish it got closer to the river. Wish I’d known it was mostly up on the way back. Next time we’ll park at Cook Park and start and end there.

Great for young kids. A very nice interpretive center.

I always forget to put the tracker on..... this was a cute and easy flat hike aside from the hill when you first start. Only a few open fields that were super sunny. I like the off trail path for our kid because you could see the water and stay in the shade.
there was a surprise park about a mile or so in w a playground and open bathrooms. 4 stars for not having soap in the bathrooms but other than that it was great. Next time i want to try alone so i can do the whole loop and leave a better comment

Loved it

Fun walk for when you need to get out into some fresh air, yet not looking to climb a mountain.
Definitely family friendly.

Went out there to get off the pavement and get a trail run in. Sign right when I got out of the car read, "no running on trails." Bummer! Guess they don't want fast moving people to spook the wildlife. This is not a place for trail running!

Very easy nice stroll

The forest parts are beautiful, the rest is kinda boring. Decent walk for the family

Not bad trail. It's much more of a spectator's hike. I'm a hobby photographer so I enjoyed walking it slowly looking for some neat photo opportunities. There are a lot of birds including bald eagles, some nutria and other small animals like rabbits. It's enjoyable if you're not looking for any challenge at all.

Peaceful and pretty walk that was easy.

Unless you're a bird watcher, this trail is kind of boring. It is flat and exposed, meandering through marshland. We went on a hot summer day, and I don't think that was the best time to go, as the water level was very low, the birds weren't very active, and it was quite hot with no shade. I did go one other time when the Canada Geese were landing one beautiful fall evening at sunset, but on that occasion I did not walk the trails, only observed the geese landing on the marsh water.

Walked from Cook Park (on the north side of the river) west to the end of the trail at 108th ave. Not much to see. Can't even see the river most of the time. And then back east to Durham Park off Boones Ferry. Very crowded in the Summer. Not sure why this trail doesn't show up on the map.

Nice quiet walk. Too flat to be hiking.

A nice little outing through the marsh and a slow Tualatin River flow, I recommend going in the spring or fall.

The 3 mile loop is closed from October 1 through April 30th to protect the wildlife that visit the refuge. A 1.8 mile, mostly flat, trail is open year round. Both trails will take you to multiple view points with benches. Much of the seasonal longer trail is in the open so bring plenty of sun block and water.

The eagles have returned to their nest so bring binoculars and your camera. They will also have a spotting scope on the nest in the visitors center. Primary a birdwatching area, but we've also spotted deer, frogs, and snakes along the trail.
