Description

I parked at the Oregon Ridge Dinner Theater lot and walked past the playgrounds. The trail starts on the right, cuts through some trees, and then follows the edge of the treeline for a half mile or so in the direction of the Nature Center. Once you re-enter the woods, the trails are wide, well traveled, and easy to navigate. You end up at the top of the skiing hill for a nice view looking down, before descending to the Lodge and back to the parking lot. It's an enjoyable hike - there are a couple of creek crossings on the Ivy Hill Trail and lots of beautiful scenery.

Not as crowded as most parks in the area. Plenty of parking. Only a couple muddy parts despite a lot of rain this past week.

Lovely trails, well kept, very hilly and rocky/rooty in parts so a good workout but always VERY crowded. No one respects social distancing. Walkers don’t move for runners even on very narrow parts of the trails and people don’t keep their dogs on leashes.

Rained in the morning so it was a lot muddy. The yellow trail portion does have some creek crossings that are the trickiest part of the hike.

Super nice trail! Wide and quiet. Some mud spots but easily walk-around-able. Several Creek crossings. Quiet well maintained park overall.

Great trail! We parked at the dinner theater but we recommend parking at the Nature center. Beautiful views of the lake and the stream that followed most of the trail.

Not a bad trail for a day hike. Plenty of birds, a nature center and a lake. Not crowded during the week but could be on a weekend.

Heavy traffic on memorial day weekend. Otherwise deserving of four stars. Nicely cleared paths and a nice segment along the river. A few stream crossings. Dog enjoyed it.

Very well maintained trail. One scenic overlook and several good views of the rushing creek. There were a couple tricky creek crossings, but I managed to stay dry. There are also 2 sections with very steep incline for about 3/4 mile each, which is very good if your looking for a calf-burning workout. Would definitely come back

This should be rated moderate, not easy. I plugged the numbers into a few calculators including what the national park service uses. Anyway.... Hiked this on a chilly-for-April Friday afternoon, after almost 24 hours of rain. Trails were a little muddy at points, but nothing too bad. Wide paths, nice tree coverage. A few stream crossings, the water seems to be getting higher. Only 2 long uphills and a good deal of flats. Very enjoyable.
