Just a nice simple walking trail alongside the Long Tom River, upstream from the Fern Ridge Reservoir. Parking requires a state Fish & Wildlife parking permit, but there is nearby parking. There is a portable toilet in the parking lot. This trail is flat, shaded, but well maintained. There are a couple of side trails, and a loop at the end. Out and back is about a mile.
