Overcast day. A few runners and bikers out. Nice paved urban trail which keeps you (mostly) off surface streets. The first 1.2 mile section goes from Olleson to Allen Rd in Beaverton.

A nice out and back run, ride or walk. On a sunny day the views of Mt. Hood and the Columbia are amazing!

Oak Island Trail

The Oak Island trail feels way more remote than it actually is, which is a good thing.

Located towards the middle of Sauvie Island, the loop trail offers fine view of nearby hills and the ever-calm Sturgeon Lake.

The trailhead is easy enough to get to, though there is little signage until you arrive. Note that a $7 parking permit is required, which can be purchased at the store near when you first cross on to Sauvie.

While the area is beautiful and the nature has that wild feel, the trail itself is not maintained well. It is essentially a vehicle track overgrown with grass and weeds. The grassland to the immediate west of the trail was being used as a grazing ground for local cows.

At one point, the trail continues past a barbed-wire fence. To continue you must pass through the nearby gate. Easy enough, but without any signage whatsoever, those who aren't feeling adventurous may be pressured to turn back.

That would be a shame, however, because the best part of the loop is immediately after said gate. The trail continues into a quaint ash tree forest. Past this are gorgeous clearings framed by wild thickets of underbrush and trees. This combined with the nearby Sturgeon Lake creates some refreshing and varied scenery as you're trudging through the primitive trail southward.

Close to the end the even more primitive Sauvie Island trail begins. Due to the overgrown nature of the environs, I'd recommend against trying to find it unless the weather is agreeable (it was pretty rainy during my trek).

Wapato Loop Trail

The Wapato Loop offers the perfect forest escape in the Portland/Vancouver area, which is saying something. I think it might just be my favorite easy hike in our region. The trail is as green as it is peaceful.

The Wapato Loop offers the sense of being lost in the woods without causing you to be in fact lost in the woods. It's an easy trek, and the trail is defined well enough so that you never feel at a loss of direction.

At the center of the loop is a big duck pond, which is appealing in a very modest sense. There's a wide variety of plant life on the loop, including some very ancient oaks.

While not officially a part of the trail, the docks on the southern tip of the Wapato Loop are an easy stroll. The best water views on the trail can be had from here, and there are even picnic tables not too far away from the docks themselves.

Good, quick, in-town conditioning hike, albeit short. Travels steeply at times from near the base of Germantown Rd up to Skyline road. Turn onto the Wildwood trail to lengthen your outing.
