This route will take you on a great hiking trail, a bat loop trail, and even a horse trail along the Clackamas River. While you are in the southern section take the time to check out the fish hatchery, the dam, and also take a stroll down to the river there as well.

Nondescript, no real view, lots of horse poop on the trail. Better west side forest hikes exist all over the Willamette Valley.

Hiked this today. The Dog Creek Loop is short and easy. It would be great for kids. Goes past river and leads to fish hatchery. Opposite this trail entry point is the boat launch. You can access the more moderate level trail, Riverbend Trail. In this area of the trail, you share it with horse riders. So, when wet, it's really muddy in places. The few riders I met were friendly. A better access to the Riverbend Trail is in the Riverbend Day-Use Area. You'll find disc golf at this parking lot.

Park rangers/state park has hatred towards anything but horse riders. They would rather see trails get destroyed by horses before allowing families to enjoy trails on bicycles.

Caters to horseback riding more than hiking. Horse trails make for easy walking. We only did about half of the trail. The dam is neat, as is the hatchery. Not a big park but if you're in the area it's worth a stop. The frisbee golf course looked good. They have a large off leash area too.

Campground is ok. They want everyone to have reservations... like we plan our trips that firm?!?!? Come on Oregon State Parks... live a little, fly by the seat of your pants! The reservation line can't tell how many sites are open... all this technology, still no clue!

This was a nice hike. We started at the Dog Creek Trail, but like other reviewers, got somewhat off-track. The trail was a little muddy (late June), but manageable. The trail goes through wooded areas, over creeks, near the fishery, and aside wide open fields with wild flowers. It was an easy hike for my teenagers, a little challenging for me (recuperating from longterm illness). We intended an easy 2 mile hike, however, ended up doing somewhere between 4 and 5 miles on the horse trails.
