Paved path follows the Willamette River with views of Mount Pisgah. The 10-foot-wide asphalt path transports walkers, runners, and cyclists along the river. The trek offers close-up views of wildlife and wildflowers, along with a new perspective on Mount Pisgah in the distance to the south.

Lovely, easy walk on a level paved path through the trees by the river bank . It was not heavily trafficked on the Sunday afternoon that I was there, but there were enough people for a single woman to feel comfortable walking alone. The park offers a Frisbee Golf course which is fun for all ages.

This is a decent path, not trail. It begins at Dorris ranch on the main trail that you follow to the river, through the orchards and forest. Once you meet with the main "path" it is a wide newly poured concrete walk. It is clean and nice, and it follows the river, with scenic views and a few benches for relaxing. It is more of a Sunday walk path and not much of a hike. Still beautiful though and nice to get down to the river without having to drive out of town.

It's paved all the way. A negative for a walker or pounding the pavement. I can't wait to ride a bike in this path. It is another rather remote location with iffy people encounters. Just gong go it alone and don't leave valuables in car. Follows the willamette.

Really enjoyed walking this trail with my Father who is a Disabled Veteran. The fact that it was paved made it easier for him to be able to walk around without tripping on logs or rocks.

It paved the whole way so rough on the feet and dogs feet. The river is sometimes in view. Theirs a lot of transients and your pretty isolated because of this I wouldn't recommend walking alone. I had to step over a drunk guy and the person with him was in the bushes. Nice walk with a group.
