Great for the family
Sep 2019
I took my kids ages between 2 to 9 and we had a great time. For being close to everything it semed like we were not.
As we walked the path we could hear the horns from the boats coming in. Everyone in our group was able to do this hike. We did have some breaks throughout.
There are some spots with uneven ground from tree growth and a few inclines. Not just a simple walk. We all enjoyed ourselves.

Great trail run through the tall old growth

Amazing little preserve right off the main highway. I did the main loop which offered lots of steep hills, quiet bogs and old growth forest. Many other side trails available.

Interesting nature walk
Nov 2018 • Family
I walked the trail i november 2018, Depending on your pace, about an hour or so will cover the loop. Nice scenery, cool path to see up close lots of plants and small animals. On a cool day a rain jacket might come in handy and sturdy boots or shoes. All in all worth the time and good photo stops along the way. Enjoy.

I was able to hit this trail at the peak of blooming season for wild rhododendrons....it is beautiful. Mosquito repellent is a must!

My husband and I found this by chance last fall.... it was really a nice walk... interpretation signs along the way of nature.... it is not easy to find, easy to miss... but it felt like we were back in a rain forest in Costa Rica... minus the monkeys..LOL

Fun New Hike
Sep 2016 • Couples
We love to find new hikes when we travel. I'd read about this hike. It's not well marked but found it with help of our gps. It's a short 1 mile hike but has quite a bit of elevation, lots of bridges, old growth forest & lots of tree roots & mushrooms. The trail is fun. Good trail for kids. Definitely not handicap accessible. Located south of bridge in South Beach.

Easy stroll through tree tinnels

A very beautiful hike, lush and green. We saw newts and salamanders, moss covered trees and a beautiful pond. Easy hike there are some uphill parts that could be treacherous

Great short hike with the dog

Under appreciated and under used, which is great if you like breaking away from other folks. Beautiful treed path but only for the agile; there is a straight flat section at first but then it becomes quite steep and root covered, will be muddy if it has rained (the Emery take-off is muddy much of the time but you don't need to take it). The sign says the hike is about 45 minutes, perhaps at a leisurely pace. Its a great work out if you like to trail run but keep your eyes on the ground as it is covered with tripping roots. They updated benches along the path.

OregonHikers.org has some pics.

I recommend it if you want a forest hike.

A walking trail in the woods
Feb 2015 • Couples
The word 'park' in the name is a bit misleading. Mike Miller Park is a chunk of land that has nothing in common with a smooth, open, grassy city park!

We stopped by on a bright sunny day. There is a sign on Hwy 101, but if you miss it turn east on SE 50th Street, by the Ready-Mix concrete plant. It's in South Beach, about a mile south of the bridge.

The road is paved, and in a few hundred yards, you'll see a sign on the left. You don't see a 'park', just the start of the trail. We parked along the edge of the road - and that is the only area to park. There is no room for RVs towing anything and nowhere to easily turn a large RV around. Small motorhomes not towing are okay.

The footpath starts off to the north. It winds around through mixed conifer trees of varying ages and sizes, with some larger Sitka spruce. We thought the little pond was pleasant. The sign says the full circle will take about an hour, but I think that most people could walk it in about half that time. The section that we walked was level and very easy although farther on it may go up/down hill a bit.

This is a nice place to easily get out into 'nature' and relax, even though it's close to the college and other businesses. It was quiet and peaceful and we didn't see anybody else when we were there.
