    An Oregon jungle - flat loop trail, with an extension trail that goes down to the river. Not sure how far that went but the loop was a mile or less, with no incline. Very green and beautiful and wet (when I was there). Mosquitoes were everywhere but not attacking, simply existing. Still, they swarmed in a scary amount.

    So many mosquitoes that you’re probably swatting and waving mosquitoes out of your face just as much as you are moving your feet to walk. So guess it’s a good workout. Lol Highly recommend bug repellent for this trail.

    I don't think many people go there, the trail is quite overgrown with plenty of mosquitos and poison oak so wear pants and long sleeves. I saw several piles of large predator skat on the trail. Bring a machete and make noise when you walk here.

    This was a beautiful place for a walk! If you are into birding and/or nature photography you will love it here! I visited late in the afternoon so I only saw a handful of different birds which included Canadian Geese, Sand Pipers, Sparrows and Egrets. There is a platform that you can walk up on that provides amazing views of marshy wetlands and it’s gorgeous (see pictures). Definitely recommend place! Do note that a Federal Recreation Land Pass is required to park here and you can grab one at any place that sells fishing licenses.

    Best to walk the wooded trail late autumn Oct after the mesquitoes or early spring befor they hatch No amount of repellent will protect you so wear long sleeves & pants at the very least durning the summer And don't venture to the very end if the trail You will 💯 % get mobbed by large hungry mesquitos without a bee keepers suite When the trail begins to look less traveled 🚫 stop for sure & go back 10 yards Good fishing 🐡
