This trail is part of a state park so you will need to purchase either an annual pass ($30) or a day pass ($5). 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.

Short and sweet. Lots of con webs across the trail. Trans stick to deflect. Not a great destination hike due to short length but if you’re at the park or in the area, it’s a nice jaunt w a couple of dogs or small kiddos.

The “up river” wooded part of the trail is somewhat overgrown. We had to go under and over several down trees and move some blackberry vines. Nice section of river along length of park. Very level, easy walking path. Close to town. We went on a Sunday and very few people in the park.

The forest trail was pretty, but there were a LOT of spiders and mosquitos. We were constantly running into large webs that ran across the trail. I would say that it was not worth the $5 entrance fee...

A beautiful and large open park, not so much “hiking trails” except for some wooded areas, but still a fun place to visit. It’s a state park so the fee applies. The river is beautiful and the park is well maintained with sheltered eating areas, bathrooms, and an enclosed off-leash pet area. A fun place for a summer picnic!

Very pretty and barely anyone there. Lots of spiders on he trails though so make sure to bring a stick to wave in front of you as you walk.

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.
