Hopkins Demonstration Forest
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 140-ac property includes recently harvested brushy areas, young conifer plantations, riparian forest, and upland conifer and mixed stands. Adjacent fields and forest provide additional habitat. The Forest contains more than 3 mi of walking routes (trails and gravel roads) with limited traffic (authorized vehicles only). The 1-mi long Watershed Interpretive Trail has numbered posts along Little Buckner Creek to mark sites that are explained in an interpretive brochure. Watch for Varied Thrush, Pileated Woodpecker, Ruffed Grouse, Hutton’s Vireo, Red-tailed Hawk, Wood Duck, Brown Creeper, Winter Wren, and Steller’s Jay. The front gate is always open to the main parking lot, but visitors are requested to observe daylight-use hours, seven days/week.
