This is a peaceful and pretty walk. I always see birds from the trail. For those that need a good walking surface, this is a nice walk. So close to the city, but feels like you are away.

This is easy to miss as you drive by on Highway 14 but well worth the stop. You can learn s lot about local plants and wildlife. It's an easy stroll on well maintained paths.

A peaceful, natural setting for a walk. Family friendly. Or a solitary hike. Access to a longer trail along the Columbia River.

Really pretty surroundings only 15 min out of Camas. We bumped into lots of bird photographers and families. The track is really easy and there's also some educational features which the kids will love. Take a packed lunch and make a day if it 😊
