From the top of the hill at the lookout, watching and listening to the birds was really cool. It is very beautiful from that vantage point. The trails are nice, but if you have difficulty hiking you may get winded. Wheel chairs would be quite difficult, but not impossible. You can't take your dogs, but that keeps the birds from being terrorized.

This place is always new having something to see in all seasons. It is a hike that small children can do as well as adults. A quite walk will give you all sorts of birds, deer, and other small wild animals. This is not a place available to the family pooch, so leave her at home. I have done this many times, and have never been disappointed.

Super duper hike to the top of the hill.
I enjoy interpretive trails so this fit the bill.
The path wasn’t too tough, workout that didn’t kill
Didn’t even have to take a pain pill!

To be fair, I've never stopped there but have driven by a few hundred times and I can see most of the Slough as I go by. canadian geese stay here when they migrate. I've seen nutra. If you're lucky you may spot some deer. But it's free and easy access on and off Hwy 22.

We pass this area always on our way to the coast. We even have an oil paintint of the area. No matter the time ofthe year this area has ever changing rolling hills, an abundance of wildlife and sometimes even Mt. Hood.
