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.

Great trail, a lot to see. Just be aware of the homeless encampments in the bushes to the right, opposite side of the water. Wear mosquito repellent!!!

Beautiful wildlife sites. It felt like a story book marsh. Even went on a rainy day and so happy I chose to be outside here. Loved the juxtaposition of the buildings behind the trees. Very restorative.
