This park is known for its wildflowers and bird species. This 26 acre preserve of restored oak woodlands is home to an abundance of Pacific Northwest wildflowers that can be found throughout the woodlands, grassy plateau, and rocky outcrops found throughout the preserve. You have a good chance of seeing hawks and other raptors soaring above as well as a variety of waterfowl in the ponds. Look for songbirds in the woodland areas.

Did on 05/25/17. This is owned by The Nature Conservancy and is maintained to reflect the unique vegetation types found prior to European settlement of the Willamette Valley. It serves as an outdoor classroom to discus the value of oak savanna habitats, and as a reserve for plants and animals of this typology. Well worth going for a quick stroll since the trail less than a mile.

Easy to find, Great trail. Plenty loop options to choose from and yet it is all very cleared marked. Not much to see view wise but the trail was big enough I feel left some path to be explored so I'd say I would come back again.

great hidden preserve. Native flower plant folks will love it. Word of caution: There is poison oak in the preserve.

Very peaceful with great mountain views. Definite noise from freeway and school. Very short flat loop trail that is best in spring when covered in wildflowers.
