Location

This park charges a fee. Take I-84 exit 17 in Troutdale. Proceed east along the frontage road for a half mile and turn right (south) on NW 257th Ave (AKA NW Graham Road). Go 0.3 miles and turn left on the Historic Columbia River Hwy. Take the 2nd right onto Buxton Avenue and travel south for about a half mile and the road will fork. Stay to the left and the road becomes S. Troutdale Road. Take S. Troutdale about 2.6 miles south and turn left (east) on Division (actually these two roads merge so you don’t actually make a turn). Take Division east for 1.5 miles and turn right (south) onto SE Oxbow Drive. Take this road about 2.2 miles to SE Hosner Road. Follow Hosner north into the park.

Habitat and Birds

This is a good wooded area with lots of local passerine breeders and plenty of action during the migrations. It’s situated right on the Sandy River so many birds use this area as a migration route.  American Dipper is sometimes seen by the river
