A beautiful park at the confluence of the Pudding, Molalla, and Willamette Rivers. Take a hike along a beautiful meadow and through woods to the shore of the Molalla River. If you have time enjoy a picnic at the tables near the parking lot and a game of horse shoes!

Very wet, bushy, and shrubbery. Only good for water sports. Not worth walking the trail. I'm sure there's poison ivy and ticks. Got really muddy on the shore.

The forested part of the trail is not maintained. Overgrown in many places. Lots of stinging nettles.

The trail was scenic, along two rivers. Parts were quite secluded. Downside is that the trail is not well maintained at the end.

I did this trail yesterday, it was nice, very easy, no major hills. It was very warm, I think Canby area can be alot warmer in the summer. The trails take you thru some deep brush and there were lots of flying insects around, & w/ the humidity, it was distracting. The only issue with this trail is that it's very difficult to actually see the river, mostly it's obscured by brush. I had my dog with me who is very well mannered, so she didn't use her leash hardly at all. Also this park was VERY secluded, hardly anyone was there, there was a boating activity, water skiing, but not much else.
