I have not been to Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge for several years and I was amazed at the improvements in the trail, the platform for viewing, the removal of invasive species, the railings and improved walkways in muddy areas. I began at the Milwaukie Street trailhead and walked along the Oak Bluff Trail and around the meadow, returned along the Springwater Corridor trail and found a lovely trail along the Willamette River that I walked about 30 minutes for views of the river. the islands and kayakers before returning to the trailhead via a shaded trail that rejoined the Oaks Bluff Trail. Next time I will bring my binoculars as there were lots of birds for viewing. The only thing that could be better would be a trail between the pond and the railroad tracks for better viewing of the wildlife in the pond area. I was checking it out to hopefully bring a grop of friends.
