Tips

This is a nice walk or mountain bike ride along a wetland full of birds with a return along the Willamette River. This is a great place to go bird watching. You will follow a path along the east side of a wetland area where you may see some Flycatchers or even ospreys that nest nearby. Once you get to the northern parking area you will turn around and then return via the beautiful Springwater bike trail.

The best parking area is the one on the corner of Southeast 7th Ave and Sellwood Ave near the baseball field. There is no fee to park here.

Beautiful and nicely cut back, people were conscientious of mask wearing and bring little binoculars so you can see the family of 8 herons.

HikingGreat!

Beautiful view and easy trail! There are some tents set up towards the end of the loop. The water level was high and the whole wetland was bursting with ducks and even a nutria.

I saw SO much wildlife here! Bald eagles, nutria, coots, ducks... it was a great walk. Not too strenuous at all. Due to the storm on 1/12, there’s a ton of debris on the trail and one big fallen tree that can easily be walked around.

Bird watching

One of my most favorite places for local birdwatching. However, given the amount of bikers on the return path, I usually just walk down the trail till the park and then turn around and walk back through the woods.

Only drawback is the portion on the bike corridor, difficult as a pedestrian! Otherwise beautiful, especially with the fall colors

I loved this simple and beautiful trail. I wandered off of the paved path (turning left instead of right into the habitat area) to walk a trail through the trees alongside the Willamette. While in there I came face to face with a dear. Then I popped back out onto the paved path and made my way back to the Clearwater trail. Walked/hiked it in the rain and really enjoyed my time.

WalkingGreat!

Pretty easy trail, but good when hiking with folks that don't hike very often. The unexpected thing i saw today on the trail were three Deer!! Pretty cool. It's also interesting to nose around the creepy crematorium building. I would take my parents here, or walk my dog if I were close, but wouldn't go to far outta my way to do it.
