    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.

    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.

    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.

    Great hunting opportunities for stocked pheasants, good parking and access points, Google navigation takes you to the main office but access points are a short drive from there, plenty of space so hunters arent crowding each other, several duck blinds on site. Will hunt there again.
