Colorful leaves, squirrels searching for food on the forest floor and a sunny day. The four-mile loop hike in the Tualatin Hills Nature Park makes an enjoyable outing in the fall.
The 222-acre Park is a few miles west of home in the heart of the city of Beaverton. It surrounds the confluence of Cedar Mill Creek and Beaverton Creek.
At times I’ve spotted owls, rabbits, many songbirds, nutria and deer. Not on this trip, but there were a few wildflowers in bloom near the trailhead.
Always a fun place to visit, and it provided some good exercise too.
