State Park: Bike, Birding, Fish, Hike, Picnic, Walk, Water Sports
Offers you a peaceful place to walk or sit by the Willamette River. This quiet, forested park is a favorite for urban birders. As you walk deeper into the forest on the numerous trails (5-8 miles worth), it’s easy to forget you’re in a city. It’s a quick but refreshing stop if you don’t have time for a drive to the country.
