This small state park is a great place to have a picnic or fish the Luckiamute River. It's out of the usual travel corridor, so it sees little traffic.

A run is what you make it, but I had to run back and forth on this trail a lot to make it much of anything. A few spots of overhang were fun to duck under. This is really a picnic and river area though, don't come for the trail

Pretty much just a short, overgrown, muddy trail from the parking lot to the river and along the riverbank.

Tucked away little jewel, but more of a nice family picnicking area than trail. A squirrel could run it in 3 minutes. Still, a quite, peaceful place and worth a stop off.

Small, fun trail; my dog and I loved roaming it. Beautiful autumn setting. Would definitely go there again.

This trail is off the beaten path, in a pretty little area. It's very easy and a very short trail. A little bit of downhill hiking, if you want to go down to the river. It would be a great place to take a picnic and have a bit of peace and quiet.
