This walking loop around the Wapato Access Greenway State Park on Sauvie Island is a great destination year-round for bird watching. This loop will take you to a viewpoint over a marshy area where you may see herons and various song birds, to Hadley's Landing over the Multnomah Channel, then around the north end of the park back to the car.

Great quick stroll with my daughter and pup. Busy and a little narrow for social distancing. There was also a little muddy in some areas.

Good trail, but very muddy this time of year. No fee associated with this park as it is separate from the Sauvie Island Association.

I’ve been taking my dog trail running once a day here. It’s a perfect way to start the day or end it with watching the sunset on the dock or listening to all the birds wake up in the morning.

Great kid friendly hike! A bit muddy but we had boots and the kids were happy to splash in puddles. Convenient location to downtown Portland.

This is a good trail for a nice walk out in nature. It feels remote and long enough that you get a reprieve from the city and can get lost in nature. Yet it's simple enough that it isn't an ordeal to get to/complete. Pretty views of the water on the east side of the loop, with lots of pretty, colorful birds to see. It's a little muddy on the west side of the loop, so I would recommend wearing boots.

I have taken this trail many times in different seasons. My husky loves the areas to explore. Easy trail but can get muddy during the rainy months. Summertime is great, and there is a picnicking area should you want to add a stop. The loop is well travelled and is easy to follow; additionally, there are wildlife information postings to add to the education of the area especially nice for those not having been here before.

Nice short easy hike close to home. The only drawback was the people who left their dogs poo bags near the beginning of the trail.

The trail is pretty easy. This time of year you have lots of mud puddles to deal with and part of the trail was in the pond at one end so you cannot really do the loop in the wet spring. April
