Take a stroll in the English countryside - only without the air fare and constant sarcasm. To get there, follow Sauvie Island Road north two miles to Reeder Road. Turn right and drive Reeder Road 1.3 miles to a Y junction. Take the left fork and drive 4.2 miles on Oak Island Road to a small parking lot at the road’s end. The final 1.1 miles is gravel.
hours of fun
April 15th through to the end of September
- Very beautiful, peaceful, serene. There’s something very reminiscent of the English countryside about Sauvie Island in general, and Oak Island in particular.
- At around 3 miles around and flat, it’s a good length trail for little folk.
- Huge quantities of blackberries in late summer.
- As with every other non-commercial destination on the Sauvie Island, don’t forget to buy/bring your Sauvie Island parking permit. Day use and annual permits are most easily purchased at the general store that lies just over the Sauvie Island bridge.
- The last mile or so of Oak Island Road leading up to the parking area is unpaved and very narrow. Drive with care.
- Closed in the winter; open April 15 through September.
New additions to the route include a herd of cows and a couple of gates (to keep the cows from migrating to the NE corner of the island). Remember to close the gates behind you.
