Decent elevation gain at first to get the heart rate up. Muddy spots. Quiet. Beautiful.

Tried to go here but dogs are not allowed even on leash.

Started at 1pm today, took just over an hour. If you go clockwise you have a long descent which can be hard on the knees. The first half has a lot of ups and downs. All a wide gravel road good for social distancing. Passed 2 groups but there were about 6 cars when we parked. Nice to not have to watch your feet constantly.

Good for pushing a stroller near a curious toddler

Sweet forest trail but pretty muddy right now. I would give it a couple weeks of dry weather before hiking again. Some trails closed due to “unsafe conditions”

Very kid friendly trail. We saw many bugs, rabbits and nutrias!! There is a dock on the lake. Nice short walk.

According to my normal method I tried to explore every trail in the park. There are some awesome dirty trails with steps and bridges that seemingly don't exist according to the map. They do indeed exist, and they are the highlight. I explored the tail trail that extends from the far curve of the travel loop. It's not really worth your time, is a lot of work, and I think it spills out on electric company property. Lots of cool trees, plants and flowers. I didn't see much wildlife. There were tons of cars parked at the trailhead and lining the road, but the trails were almost empty. I barely saw anyone. Not sure where everyone went. I generally explored every trail except some roads under power lines that probably led nowhere.

Love this trail. So much cooler than I thought it would be. The adjacent school was worth exploring for me. Felt like I grew up here even though I've never set foot on the park before. little critters everywhere. The place is overrun by bunnies!

Evidence of ivy clearing made for a prettier wooded scene down and then back up. Closure signs most likely to reduce legal liability; easy passage by the heavily eroded culverts in two short trail segments. Nice.

Cool little area. It’s still currently open during COVID, but about half of the garden is not accessible because of construction. Good for walking. Lots of neat plants/flowers/etc. to look at.

Gravel road. Gave me a good workout!

Quick trail. Pretty steep down and back. There were a decent amount of rocks and roots sticking out, so it’s probably not ideal for trail running. Dogs not allowed. Forest scenery.

This hike is on an old fire/gravel road the whole way. Lots of switchbacks with inclines regardless the way u go. Beautiful views of Hoot and Helen though. No pets though.

Perfect trail for a relaxing walk or a peaceful jog. Not crowded, just the occasional hiker.

Fire road zig-zag under power lines. Gentle elevation changes. Easy for my 6 y/o son and 65 y/o mother-in-law.

Excellent trail on gravel. No pets though. It says easy but I would recommend this to be more of moderate hike for a beginner.

Took some folks who were visiting from out of town and they loved it (who wouldn’t). Finished off with a nice happy hour burger and beer! Don’t forget to tip your guides (;

Crowded, but in good condition

I sudden forgot the sounds of the cars when I saw a bald eagle, red tailed hawk and osprey in the span of 5 minutes.

Trail is marked “no pets”, so if you have a dog, consider that when choosing trails :-)

Dogs are not allowed on this trail. Other than that, this a great little hike. It is listed as a sanctuary and I see why. Quiet peaceful walk. Not many people. Beautiful forest surrounding.

Very beautiful with lots of ducks, geese and squirrels that come right up to your hand. Very accessible with paved trails and a few hard packed crushed gravel trails. Will definitely make it a regular walk.

Great little trail for bird watching. Lots of wildlife; saw several bald eagles, and a bald eagle nest, as well as dozens of ducks, geese, green herons, and nutrias. Can be a little crowded at times but still very nice.

Beautiful in fall. Very quiet because everyone is over at Tryon Creek State Park. Narrow trail with somewhat steep down then back up hike. Can barely see the river at the bottom, but lots of car noise there. Trailhead isn’t clearly visible from the parking lot but GPS helped. Part of Lewis & Clark college campus.

Love it! Adventure! Turned it into a 5T by adding Tacos at the end!

Exquisite, peaceful short trail that winds through the wooded wetlands. The woods give way to views of the lakes at several points. I’ve gone three times and have seen all kinds of birds (including great egrets, blue herons, bald eagles, woodpeckers, and a sleeping owl). Each time I’ve been, it has the perfect human to animal ratio: almost no people vs. hundreds of animals. The large clearing towards the end of the trial is the best place to view wildlife, though they are spread throughout the area too. For a place located within Portland, it feels remote and largely untouched. Note that, unfortunately, dogs are not allowed on the trail.

Not really well kept, but most trails are ok. Seems like it’s very popular for bikes
