This trail offers many opportunities to see green flatland beauty as well as feeling completely immersed within the trees. The trails are pretty wide and it is a popular trail. Be prepared to wear hiking boots or boots you don't mind getting wet or muddy. During the moist times of the year, especially, look out for the trail being blocked by mud. The trail is a little confusing to follow, but the beauty is worth it.

I come here several times a week to walk. Lots of trails, mostly paved (asphalt) but some just wood chips. Some trails are open, some in the woods, some along the river. You can get pretty far out and not see many people at all. Has a very big dog park and dogs are OK on other trails on leash. The loops I walk are 3-5 miles but sometimes I do an 8 mile loop, there are plenty of signs with maps. Lots of birds to look at depending on the season. In winter/spring some areas flood, limiting access on some trails. Recently the park has been expanded at the northern end and now connects by pedestrian bridge to downtown Salem. Only thing I would improve if I could would be to add some hills - the park is overall pretty much flat.

I really love this place I come here every once in a while. I enjoy to bike, walk, run, and play with my dogs while sometimes my family and I go kayaking. Their is a lot to explore including a broken car in the woods and some openings to swim. If I could I would rate this a 10 out of 10 would Come again please come to this awesome park that is connected to river front enjoy everything I do and more down at river front park where a merry go round is waiting for you, please enjoy everything I do and more talking to nice people there. (Kid friendly)
