Trail Stats: 1.2 miles round trip // Level: Easy // Elevation Gain: 50 ft

This is an easy family friendly stroll through former farmland. From the trailhead, walk the well-graveled trail through an abandoned field. When you come to a fork, take the right route. The easy trail weaves its way through a couple of fields to a sign describing planned restoration. From here, the trail heads straight south toward the river. As the trail winds just above the floodplain, look for paths down to the river. Particularly when windy, the views of the river and the Oregon side of the Gorge can be quite beautiful.
