This is a great park to walk the dog, really easy going paths to follow. I would advise the mosquitos in the shaded areas parallel the river were pretty aggressive mid summer but once away from those areas it was easy strolling. Great place to run as well. This is a state park so if you frequent, check out the state parks web site to find the year and two year passes, five bucks a visit can start to add up.

Enjoyed a fun family hike. The trails were covered in snow but still walkable. It was icy and cold but looked like a winter wonderland. Such fun!

Beautiful trails with lots of variety. There's pavement, gravel, grass trails etc. A lot of options as to where to go, and it winds next to the river. It's lovely! I included a picture of the map so you guys can see the trail options etc.

This is an awesome hike with a little bit of history thrown in. Beautiful area with lots of trees and singing birds around you. The hike is listed as moderate, but I found it to be easy. I did the educational 2.5 mile loop then wound my way over to the mission trail. Don't leave without seeing the ghost structure of the mission. Will definitely do this hike again.

Nice stroll with the family. 4 year was tired about half way through. Saw and heard lots of birds! All had a good time. Except my shoulders.

Trail was super mucky. Would have been more fun during summer months when things dry out. Also trail was super easy, didn't even get a little sweaty.

Nice, easy flat trails. There are numerous tree identification signs for you to get a sense for the local trees. Also you will see the largest Black Cottonwood tree in the nation, learn about the flood of 1861 that changed the course of the Williamette River and learn to look out for cougars! Yes, there have been cougar sighting in the park just two week ago (last sighted Sept 1, 2015) . So if you are hiking with younger kids keep them reasonably close. There is a small fee ($5) for day use. Also there is a group camp and horse trails.
