See and do
- See the nationally designated Wild and Scenic Sandy River. This undammed river carves cliffs and creates beaches in the park as it carries snowmelt and glacial till from its source on Mount Hood.
- Hike 12 miles of trails: gentle grades along the river’s terraces or steeper trails up a ridge between the river’s bends.
- Explore one of the closest old-growth forests to Portland.
- Float the river in a tube, boat or kayak.
- Watch salmon spawn.
- Track animals on the river’s sandy beaches, where mink, beavers, black bears and other wildlife come to drink.
- Learn in an outdoor classroom about tracking, mushrooms and other topics.
- Dine al fresco in a reserved group shelter, perfect for a family reunion, church outing or company picnic.
- Bring environmental education to life on a field trip led by a Metro naturalist.
