This was a great trail for me and the boys on a summer ride. We road on many different loops and surfaces. I would rate it as easy. The setting was beautiful and other users friendly.

So many trails for biking, walking, running (and great hiking trails going off the main paths). If you like fishing, this is a great place for that too! And don't forget the well-kept dog park!

Complex trail network can be confusing, but it makes it easy to customize the distance you want to go! most paths are paved and everything is VERY well marked with maps frequently throughout the park.

nice easy walk along paved path way. I was able to walk my dogs and the kids rode their bike. The wife and I were able to take in some very pretty view, and even though the day was hot, there was a lot of shade.

Wild flowers were blooming all along the trail and in the open meadows. Was an easy but beautiful walk along the river and into the open park spaces. Paved and crushed rock pathways with no real climbs. Good for families and pets on leashes.

Great no pressure walk. Nice for a casual stroll or bike ride around with a friend or pet. Easy to get turned around if your not careful, so pay attention to what turns you take.

Very nice trail and very close to Salem. Great to get away on an island. You feel like you are in the middle of nowhere.

our 1st Minto Brown walk with our new Yorkie boys! we all did geeat!

this is NOT a hike but is a great walk. The park is almost all pavement therefore a GREAT place for a young child to learn how to ride a bike without training wheels or a young family pushing a stroller. It was also good for me trying to rehabilitate my knees after a bad car accident. So my rating for a hike is one star but as a walk 4.5 stars.

beautiful area and is extremely dog friendly. there's also an unfenced dog park.

Love this place..would not consider a hiking spot, but it's a very beautiful and flat area.

Nice paved trail for a nice jog. There’s plenty of people around and it feels very safe.BONUS Porta Potty’s are very clean too.

This is an incorrect description for this map route. Wheatland Ferry is north of Salem. Route is showing a water route between Independence and the Marion St. Bridge in downtown Salem, Oregon.

Snuck in a walk for the doggo in a break in the weather. Loved the bridge, it was an incomplete effort but time restraints were in place. Will come back with a bike and when the water levels go down to hit the whole trail network.

Pleasant walk in Salem downtown area. Beautiful in the spring as the cherry trees are blossoming.

easy walk, nice for all people

In Spring you get amazing wildflowers, in Summer you get berries, in Fall you get amazing foliage, and in Winter, you get mud. Don't go during the winter!

Extremely basic park with no outstanding features.

Nice stroll through the capital mall. I was apprehensive about how simple this was but found myself enjoying wandering around on a gorgeous fall day. Even though this wasn’t my typical hike through the woods this is still a state park with many plugs and facts about the history of the state. If you find yourself wanting to explore this is still an experience that’s worth an hour or so, plus if you wander during business hours the state building is open to the public for viewing and getting a couple free history lessons.

First and foremost this wildlife refuge It's an awesome getaway. It's a great place to walk, run, ride bicycles, ride skate boards and long boards. It's has a good dog park, and some pretty good fishing holes too if you're into that. It's just a awesome park to visit.

Took my recumbent trike on this trail. Lots of fun. Fairly busy but not crowded. Pleasant ride.
