Great if you're looking for a relatively flat path to take a stroll with dogs and/or family. Plenty of great scenery for photography, especially on sunny days and in the forest-y section of the trail!

This is definitely an urban trail. It is very well maintained, except all of the dog poop bag stations were empty. It is around the golf course and houses surrounding the golf course, with a very small section that goes through a wooded area with a stream. Part of it also parallels the main road, so lots of traffic noise. I was a little disappointed by the surroundings of this trail, I was expecting something more wildlife geared. But it was easy and the trail is chipped which helped with the wet weather.

Great kayaking

This is a nice and short afternoon hike. It takes probably an hour if you maintain a pace. Its very well maintained with a soft wood chip path. There is opportunity to see wildlife for part of it. Some scenic opportunities for photography.

I enjoyed it however was not easy for me. I did it though and will make it a weekly hike since the weather is getting nicer.

This is a great park to bring the family or be by yourself. A short distance from the entrance is a great walking, bike trail. Bring your dog. Great views of the Clackamas River. Fly Fishing. boat docs are closed on my trip. Fishermen's store in across the street. McDonald's, Shari's is close by.

This was our first kayaking adventure and it was amazing.

Willamette Falls is the highlight here, at 1,500 feet wide and 40 feet tall. The water flow is much better in the offseason, from pictures I have seen. But there is a lot of history to enjoy along this stretch of the Willamette River, including urban legends about Hell's Angels driving over the upper bridge supports as an initiation rite; viewing of the oldest canal and locks system in the US (it is decommissioned because $30 million isn't available to get it up to code) and various paper mills that have made this area their base of operations since 1866. We saw a few Blue Herons and Geese hanging out.

We couldn't get as close to the Falls as we wanted to since there was some choppy water so be aware of that limitation. But overall, a great beginning kayak trail with a view that few are able to experience.

We'll maintained wood chip trail around Stone Creek Golf Course. Plenty of parking at the clubhouse.
