A 1.8 mile hike which paralles Cox Creek to the Willamette River Stroll through Waverly park on sidewalks around the boat hose with a full view of Waverly Lake, follow the sidewalk up to and cross Old Salem Rd. NE. The sidewalk continues behind Waverly Memorial Cementery. You will go under the over head rail road along Cox Creek and come to Simpson Park. The open gate lets you follow a graveled road to the second Simpson parking lot where you will go around a closed gate near the Simpson log pond. Follow the chip covered trail North with the Willamette river on your left and Simpson long pond on your right. Note the trees with the cable wraped around them for tying off log rafts.

The descriptions provided by others are pretty consistent with I would've said. Good path for a short afternoon out, without having to travel far. Occasionally I have found random people and their personal belongings along the side trails, they are kind people but if that sort of stuff makes you nervous I'd recommend going with a friend.

This starts in the parking area for Talking Waters park. It's a decent but short trail. Highly recommend it if you want to have a nice walk or bike through the woods but don't want do travel to far out of town.
