It's a nice little place to go walk around especially since I live pretty close to it. It is better down in the forested area.


Willamette Falls Kayak

This was our first kayaking adventure and it was amazing.

Willamette Falls is the highlight here, at 1,500 feet wide and 40 feet tall. The water flow is much better in the offseason, from pictures I have seen. But there is a lot of history to enjoy along this stretch of the Willamette River, including urban legends about Hell's Angels driving over the upper bridge supports as an initiation rite; viewing of the oldest canal and locks system in the US (it is decommissioned because $30 million isn't available to get it up to code) and various paper mills that have made this area their base of operations since 1866. We saw a few Blue Herons and Geese hanging out.

We couldn't get as close to the Falls as we wanted to since there was some choppy water so be aware of that limitation. But overall, a great beginning kayak trail with a view that few are able to experience.


Takelma Gorge

If you're doing the point-to-point, you will be dealing with spots of missing trail near the river, thanks to erosion. There are a couple of downed trees to traverse, as well. The trail hasn't seen any summer maintenance as of this hike. Beautiful scenery within the Gorge area--worth the time!


Timothy Lake Loop

Very well maintained trail. The segment through the campgrounds on the south shore were a bit boring but the other segments were incredible. I was amazed at the number of backcountry sites around the lake. A great place for a persons first backpacking trip.


Drift Creek Falls Trail

For how accessible the hiking trail is - the road to get there is not the safest. It is a single lane forest access road where there seem to be a lot of people who don't understand the safety risks and slow speeds necessary of driving curvy mountain roads. Once at the trailhead, plenty of parking and decent outhouse. The trail itself is fantastic. Great for trail running. The grade is manageable for all generations if you stay on the main trail. The North Loop is a bit more technical, but I would still rate it as moderate to easy. On our most recent trip, we took the North Loop in and clocked it at 1.9 miles. We took the main trail back out and it clocked at 1.3 miles.
