How to get there

From Southeast Sunnybrook Boulevard turn south on 97th Avenue and follow until it becomes Mather Road; you’ll find the park entrance on the left. As with other Metro parks designated as natural habitats, no pets are allowed and you need to stay on the trails.

Pros

  • Very pretty forested trails, excellent signage, a restroom at the main trailhead.
  • Underutilized, therefore quiet. The canopy keeps it cool on hot days.
  • Interconnected loops allow you to mix it up a little.

Cons

  • In much the same way as Forest Park, the gain in elevation is sadly not rewarded with a magnificent view. Just more trees.

In the area

We all have to shop occasionally; a walk here fits in well with a trip to Clackamas Town Center. There’s also a couple of nice mini-golf courses at Eagle Landing.
