I parked at the Oregon Ridge Dinner Theater lot and walked past the playgrounds. The trail starts on the right, cuts through some trees, and then follows the edge of the treeline for a half mile or so in the direction of the Nature Center. Once you re-enter the woods, the trails are wide, well traveled, and easy to navigate. You end up at the top of the skiing hill for a nice view looking down, before descending to the Lodge and back to the parking lot. It's an enjoyable hike - there are a couple of creek crossings on the Ivy Hill Trail and lots of beautiful scenery.Show more

A well-maintained, flat, rail-trail good for walking and biking. Accessibility: The trail has a crushed stone dust surface, and is typically at least eight feet wide. The average grade is estimated at 3% and the max grade is 5% so the grade is mostly gentle. The trail can get muddy and bumpy after rains.Show more
