Good nature trail to walk on. Gives good views of the marsh

Short, easy walk through a beautiful wooded area, ending in a great observation point over the wetlands. Many varieties of birds and smaller animals.

We enjoyed a nice walk there. There were no other people around.

Great trail right off the head quarter's parking lot. Several large muddy/standing water areas that required more careful management if people were concerned with muddy or wet shoes. This trail also links to the Woodpecker Loop for a longer hike.

Pretty short hike, but worth it. I did it close to sunset and it was very pretty. But the park closes at dusk

I recorded the one-way hike from the gated road at the parking lot. I tried going the boardwalk way first, but encountered high water. Really nice walk! I think I had the whole refuge to myself this afternoon!

This is an appealing "out of the way" small wildlife refuge in a bend of the Willamette River. Only 2.5 flat miles out and back but offering peaceful scenery, wildlife viewing opportunities and just a nice, short, enjoyable outing. Peoria road is close by and road noise will sometimes interfere with what is otherwise a rather intimate setting.

Great hike for the family. Short and very easy.
