Our Favorite Parks…

Lewis and Clark State Recreation Park

This park is great for some near by picnicking, rock climbing and one of the most popular swimming spots on the Sandy River is adjacent to the park, as well as a public boat launch. A trail climbs the cliffs to Broughton’s Bluff.

Silver Falls State Park

Great for some real green green spaces, that offers south falls day-use great for swimming and can easily access the falls by walking behind, winter falls trail-head, North falls trail-head 214 trail-head, and the Howard creek day-use also offers guided horseback riding, This park is endless of what it has to offer.

Powell Butte Nature Park

With it’s world class views right in our neighborhood this one is a must see, with 612 acres of trails to explore convenient parking lot and restrooms at the start of the trail-head. Weather your a mountain bike rider, jogger or just out to stretch your legs its great. I would recommend to snap a photo at the start of the trail-head it can get a bit confusing.
