Hike the hill at the historic Ft. Hoskins in Benton County Oregon. Easy hike, picnic area, and information nature hike about the former site of Fort Hoskins. This is a narrow winding trail through the forest and medows to a great view over looking the Hoskins valley. Trail is clearly marked, but can be muddy in the winter. From the hillside, you can see the Luckiamute River flowing east in the valley below. The Luckiamute Band of Kalapuya Indians once maintained a village on the valley floor. They were one of the many linguistically and culturally related bands of people collectively known as the Kalapuya who occupied the Willamette Valley.

Upper loop has great views, bottom loop goes through a pretty prairie. The historical markers are dated but readable.

Not a bad little hike. First half of loop is a nice work out for the legs.

Great Fall hike with my teenager. Nice mix of wooded areas and views across the valley. Interesting things to look at and talk about along the way.
