Tualatin Hills Nature Park
On a pretty day in early July, we returned to the Tualatin Hills Nature Park for a four-mile loop hike.
The 222-acre Park, surrounding the confluence of Cedar Mill Creek and Beaverton Creek, is always a fine spot to see wildlife. Over the years I’ve seen deer, nutrias, snakes, newts, squirrels, songbirds, bunnies and many varieties of waterfowl.
It is remarkably diverse with wetlands, forests, ponds and streams. The trails’ names tell the story – – – Oak, Owl, Old Wagon, Vine Maple, Big Fir, Cougar, Cedar Grove, Ash, Serviceberry, Big Pond, Trillium Loop and Ponderosa Loop.
A nice place to visit.
