Points of Interest

1. Clearwater Park

Lots of parking here at Clearwater Park. You will find the trailhead here as well as a boat landing for the Willamette River, restrooms, picnic areas and areas to fish as well.

2. Willamette River Viewpoint

There is a bench here and it's the perfect spot to sit and watch the river as it flows by.

3. Quarry Creek

This is the end of the line for now. The city has plans to expand this trail all the way to Dorris Ranch, and eventually put a bridge across the river to the Mt Pisgah area. For now you will have to stop at these picnic benches and turn back around.

The property behind the fence belongs to Springfield Utility Board (SUB).
