Overview

This little gravel loop is great for locals to get out of the house and let the stink blow off. Break in your new trail shoes or crispy new boots with a few laps on this undulating gravel path just uphill from downtown. Feeling ambitious? Warm up here, then hike across the river for the Celery Bog loops or down the river towards Battle Ground.

Not a 24 hour joint. If you can’t fight the urge don’t be surprised if the local fuzz stops by to see ya.

Need to Know

There’s a frisbee golf course here so if you’ve been meaning to try that out bring a disc. Local kids flock here in the winter for a sled run.

Flora & Fauna

Plenty of birds to be seen and roughly 50 different kinds of trees!
