About 75% of this walk is on the side of a busy road but nice views at first.

Pros: Great nature center, lots of trail options, education along the way.

Cons: Extremely high traffic, especially during program times, close proximity to parking and road in places.

Grew up walking on these trails! Peaceful and beautiful

so glad to hear all the positive reviews. I love this trail. For the past 4 Summers me and two others have been taking care of it too keep it the best we can for you.

It's my first time and I love it. will come back!

Have done this and other trails in the park. Shady all the way. Parts can be muddy and slippery in the rainy season. Usually not very crowded considering it’s in a city.

Easy hikes available for every age group

beautiful...Lots of trails.

Grew up hiking these trails as a kid in elementary school on field trips. A good easy hike for all ages! The suspension bridge is always fun too!

Cute little park. Nicely maintained trails. Great for a quick hike in the city.

Beautiful, accessible; the perfect walk in the woods.

Great space on the south and east side. The northern entrance and short loop are the least attractive areas.

A beautiful walk in the middle of Lake Oswego. One of many private properties transformed into a natural area. Oswego Canal runs alongside. There are two loops marked on the map. I wandered on every whim of a trail, but some are probably not official. Follow the park's trail map (with the 2 small loops) for an established route. An open area inside the larger of the two loops looks interesting. I imagine there was possibly once a large residence there.

Great park. Very pretty. Daughter and I hiked around for an hour today.

walked 3 miles with my 10 year old tonight and we're going back tomorrow! love how beautiful and well maintained this park is!

Either all downhill or all uphill. I have knee problems making the descent and switchbacks slow. I would consider this moderate for those with any health concerns.

Great for running and strolling. Can get buggy though in the summer.

Love the serenity and natural beauty

No major views, but it's a nice chunk of nature reserved out of an otherwise populated and luxurious area. Not much official parking at the trailhead shared with Steven's Meadow. I parked on the street in front of the fancy houses nearby, perhaps to their chagrin since I'm all lower class and such :) Nice area. Growing up near Mt. Tabor myself, I know how easy it is to take such beauty out the back door for granted. I hope those who live nearby use and appreciate Cook's Butte. I did. It seems like the northwest section of trail was freshly dug, and it varied from the gps track and park map a bit. Though perhaps my Garmin was wigging out a bit too.

Love it here, so many different hiking trials, depending how much you want to walk. A lot of scenery and small waterfalls for he kids to see. I have two kids and they loved it!!

love it! light traffic and a lot to see.

Great series of easy to almost moderate tails. Serene settings in just a few minutes from the parking lot. There's a gift shop and interpretive center with some programming for children.

Get area to run, walk, bike, horseback ride. Well groomed trails and very scenic.

2 miles loop are good . We have fun today

Easy with some elevation gain and loss. Lots of trails but trail remains in the same drainage basin so it is pretty hard to stay lost for long.

Easy hike with multiple options for trails. We did about a 2 mike loop.

Was a very nice hike. Well maintained trails.

Nice, easy walk with pretty forest views.
