This place is Great

I went last year and I got an exclusive tour of the park and helped plant trees. It was great I would recommend. This is like real nature.

Good for Birding
Nov 2018 • Family
Although this certainly isn't my favorite place in the area is pretty good for bird watching. The trail is flat and easy to navigate.

If you're looking for breathtaking views this isn't the place. If you just need a quick nature fix this will likely hold you over.

Good for bird watching
Aug 2019
Nice trail through grasslands and wetland. We saw herons, egrets, ospreys, turtles, Pacific frogs and nutria. On our way back we met a trail volunteer who told us that they were in the process of removing the dikes and letting the wetlands expand to their original form. that would be great! He thought that this place would be even better in a few years. We look forward to that

A wonderful walk through nature
May 2019
This is a great place to enjoy some peace and quiet. You will see many native critters including birds, nutria, turtles, and many others. There is a lake and a cool bridge to walk across.

Keep in mind that this is a walking trail, no bikes allowed. Your dog is not welcome either, this is to keep from disturbing the wildlife. There are restrooms at the entrance and a small picnic area too.

Great park for an easy hike and wildlife viewing
May 2019 • Solo
I enjoy visiting the park a few times a year. Spring/early summer is especially fun to watch all the baby water birds. Lots of birds and the occasional deer. The hike is mostly open with a few shade covered spots so be prepared with a hat and water in summer.

Spring day walk
May 2019 • Couples
Beautiful nature refuge ... no pets allowed! We saw a ton of birds, deer, nutria...and beautiful wild flowers. There are a couple of different paths, one leading up to the dike so you can walk along the river. Very peaceful and serene place to walk. There are occasional mountain lion sightings so probably best to walk with a friend, not alone.

Great nature watching

I. The last 2 weeks I've seen bald eagles, hawks, nutrias and various fowl. I return whenever I can for a 3 mile walk and viewings.

GREAT PLACE TO GET IN TOUCH WITH NATURE
Oct 2018 • Solo
This park with trails is a great place to walk and enjoy nature. I think you can hike up to 3 miles if you walk the entire area. The paths are well maintained and have places to sit along the way. Take a moment to sit and listen to the birds and watch for the wildlife. A decent amount of parking available. No dogs allowed on the paths in the actual wildlife refuge but there are dogs allowed along the Dike Trail which you access at the end of the Steigerwald hike.

casual stroll along water and through grass lands
Oct 2018 • Friends
this was our first time at Steigerwald. It was very relaxing. We saw a number of birds, some turtles and a couple deer. Not as wildlife-rich as Richfield, but we'll definitely go back

Steigerwald Wildlife- Great for birds

I live a couple miles away and walk this trail often. Great place for a variety of birds. Wonderful views of the gateway to the Columbia Gorge.
