From the parking lot ADA accessible trails fan out in several directions. These wide, graveled paths meander through native grasses, alongside the dammed Columbia River, and past several attractive steel sculptures.

From north to south the trails can add up to about 2 miles. Numerous short side trails head down to the water, to benches, or to blinds for bird viewing. Some, particularly towards the south are still under construction so please be respectful of ongoing work. Beebe Creek, long constrained by roads, orchards, and other man made deviations, now flows largely free and unfettered through the marshes and into the Columbia.

Numerous tracks of resident beavers, raccoon, big horn, and deer can be found on the sandy banks. Migrating birds commonly spend an time here. As do eagles, and other residents. Stop, sit at a bench, and allow the local fauna to become accustomed to your presence, in a short while they will reveal themselves to you.
