Walk along the Willamette River and through a forest of maple and river reeds, with lots of park facilities. Jasper State Recreation Site is a 60-acre riverside park along the Willamette River. A natural area bisected by walking trails lies just upstream from the group picnic areas. The park is home to a variety of native birds, including herons, osprey, hawks, and many songbirds. Trails offer anglers access to a riverbank shaded by giant cottonwoods and maple trees.

I l e walking this in the fall. So many trees and squirrels. Easy walk. Just take it in and breath.

This is an Oregon State Park and therefore requires an annual pass ($30) or a day pass ($5). There are other state parks in the area if you wanted to get the most out of your day (Elijah Bristow, Dexter, Lowell) - Support Parks!

I would break the trail into two parts - park area and wooded area. The trail begins near the dog park, by parking lot 1, but if there are a lot of cars, just find a place to park and walk over to the river. The park area trail is narrow, more of a little path that is sometimes bark dust and sometimes not. Follow the trail to the end of the grassy park area, and you will reach the woods and this is the best part - a lovely loop trail through the woods about a mile long. The end of the loop comes out in the parking lot and you can decide whether you'd like to cut back to the river or wherever your car happens to be parked. Restrooms have a cute design. If you're interested in some disc golf there is a course! During my trip we saw deer, snakes, and so many birds! Recommend for an easy walk or quick little jog.
