Stay Safe

In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.

This 128-ac Benton County Park is largely wooded and undeveloped, with an 1870s era farm house and the ruins of a schoolhouse and farm buildings. A small, seasonal wetland is near the farm house; the rest of the site is mixed grassland and forest. A 0.6 mi interpretive trail is graveled and fairly rough; another 1.2 mi loop has moderately steep grades. In spring and summer look and listen for Willow Flycatcher, Cassin’s Vireo, Hermit and MacGillivray’s Warblers, Chipping Sparrow and Purple Finch. In winter you can find Steller’s Jay, Varied Thrush, and Common Raven.

From US Hwy 20 at Wren, go N on Hwy 223 for 6.3 mi. Turn L on Hoskins Rd and go W 1.9 mi. Follow a paved turnoff to the N for 0.3 mi to a paved parking lot near the picnic shelter.
