Sandy River Delta (Autumn)

Directions: Take I-84 East to exit 18 and take a right at the stop sign. Follow the road under the freeway to the parking area.

This hike was hard for us to blog about. I (the female half of this blog) thought it was underwhelming and smelled, he thought it was pleasant and had a variety of scenery. But, what we both can agree on is that it’s a great hike for birding.

We started this hike on a service road lined with trees and brush,  that wound around to the Sandy River.  This was one of the more popular areas for dogs that we saw that day.

Continuing parallel to the Sandy we came across a bird blind. After that we walked along the banks at the mouth of the Sandy.

We then walked through a meadow of tall grass and trees that faced I-84. The trail through the meadow takes you back the parking area.

All of the trails are in good condition and easy to follow. There are no maps for the trails but they all lead back to the parking area.
