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.

Not what I was use to. This is definitely an inner city “nature” hike. Over half of the view was of graffiti on old abandoned looking buildings.

Not a bad trail. Pretty easy, good for beginners.

Magical! I wish it were closer to the water, though. Also the amount of party trash and evidence of/presence of vagrants was unsettling. I wish the loop didn’t include the bike path, and I wish you could get back to the parking lot without totally retracing. (Plus, that hill is killer when you’re tired.)

Easy hike, did it with a 60 year old smoker. She had a rough time but completed it!
