Tucked away beneath the northernmost span of the I-205 bridge, Columbia Springs is an odd little place - and a little bit charming for that.
As far as we know, this location is temporarily closed but has plans to reopen in the future.
Conservation and hiking also meet at the excellent Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve and Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge. Whitaker Ponds Nature Park has a similar feel to it, on an even smaller scale.
