Wanted to check somewhere out closer to home. There were some lovely views along this hike...I loved the rushing water under the bridge. Overall I was trying to find Woodburn Falls but found it a bit confusing based on the signage. Never did find it but I still enjoyed my time. The trail had a lot of dog waste along the path and the paths were rockier than I anticipated.

trails are not marked besides trail head. and WARNING SPOTTED a cougar at the trail split at 745 am the other day

I clicked on directions, and it dropped me just PAST the entrance to the trailhead/parking lot, which is little more than a break in the sidewalk. I drove around for a half hour until I came up from the river, and THERE it is, directly across from that street. Despite that, there are 6+ miles of trails to explore. Quite the gem, not to far from home. Also, this trail goes from 3rd street to Round lake. would continue up to Lacamas Lake, but not this segment.

Love this area. Shaded, not a flat trail in all areas but plenty. Has some gentle hills to work on the heart rate. Beautiful place to put in a few miles.

A little more rugged than I expected. Lots of tree roots across what is sometimes a very narrow and steep trail. I enjoyed it but be warned that if you are elderly, which admittedly I am, be steady of foot and firm of balance.

My favorite place on earth. I grew up literally next door and spend many hours here everyday for years. This place is my happy place. I know every trail and corner. Everyone should go here at least once. Also the other two places across the lake and ghost lake (fallen leaf lake)

Love this trail as a daily hike. So beautiful any time of the year.

Easy, great for a quick jaunt. A few options for paths to follow. Plenty of shade.

Trails are not marked well at all. This is not a good hike for walking because it's mainly overrun by bikers, so if you're a biker this is the trail for you! This is also off of a park so it's a gravel path most of the time. Wouldn't drive more than 5 mins to do this walk.

Scientific, highly trafficked, relatively bug free, well established trails and routes. Multiple access points made his fall exciting and confusing all at once. This fall is just strong enough to get under without compromising ones safety. There were only a few bikers today, no big deal since most of the trails were wide enough to accommodate every type of traveler.

Great hike with the kids.

Good easy hike with multiple trails to hop on and off. Couple good falls as well. Minimal traffic on the not main trails.

Excellent easy hike. Took our 2 and 4 year old and they had a blast.

Trails are clearly marked. Beware of cyclists, not all are courteous.

I enjoyed it there. Trails are well groomed, several places to go relax by the lake and creeks. Playground for kids, grass areas, a lot of water activity. I’ll be back

A nice, family friendly walk around a waterfowly area with nice views of the river and gorge to the southeast. I combined this walk with the Lewis & Clark Discovery Trail, hiking its entire length.

Trails well marked. Fun side trails not too crowded away from lake. Did woodburn and lower falls along with the loop around the lake.

We enjoyed a nice hike today. It's a short drive from home, it wasn't crowded and we like the ups and downs. However I am giving it 3 stars because the trails are marked pretty poorly. We ended up walking twice as much. Yes we got a good workout in, but at some point it got frustrating trying to guess the right direction all the time.

short. lots of nice off trails. was great for my dog. would give more stars if the trails were marked more clearly in some spots. very easy .

We took our 3 year old and 9 month old baby, we took the shorter hike around the lake so that our Diaghilev could have more of the water scenery. We loved it, we will be going back to fish and for another hike.

My wife and I took our 5 year old and 3 month old out for a walk here. Parking was good. The views over the lake are beautiful and the trail was a nice and simple loop.

Lived next door for most of my childhood. This park is why I love hiking. So many amazing memories. Love going back there from time to time.

Nice trail. Main drawback is the housing developments appearing along the edges of the park.

Great views of the Lake and the Falls. Lots of overgrown trees that keep the trail shaded and cool on hot days. pretty popular place though, expect lots of people and little privacy even on slow days.

Great trail for a family walk with young kids. Beautiful park and trail. The kids loved all the animal sightings, which included nutria, deer, turtles, and so many birds.

The park is a nature preserve, so that comes with a lot of restrictions; no dogs, no bikes, no trail running. These restrictions made for a very peaceful and relaxing experience.

Also we did not have to slog through spring mud thanks to the well maintained gravel trail.

I’ll be taking the family back in a few weeks so we can check out the other path that is only open seasonly.

Beautiful, love the lily fields
