Watch Wildlife & Birds
The park features two different trails: an upper walking/interpretive trail and a lower hiking trail to the falls (120' tall).
Much of this trail is not constructed yet, but when complete this important piece of the 40 Mile Loop trail system will provide an over 21 mile east-west link along the Columbia Slough — connecting Blue Lake Regional Park in Gresham to Kelly Point Park in North Portland. The built segments of the trail pass by Delta Park between North Portland Road and Interstate 5 on the west end and also along the slough adjacent Airport Way on the east end.
The Rock Creek Trail, passing through several great parks and open spaces, has something to offer everyone — wildlife viewing, hiking, biking, and fishing. The relatively flat, paved trail runs four miles one-way along a power-line corridor, beginning at Rock Creek Boulevard from the west and ending just east of Kaiser Road, with numerous entrances from adjacent neighborhoods.
Every winter one of our region's great spectacles begins to unfold. Eagles, Sandhill Cranes, Canada geese, ducks, snow geese, tundra swans, and other birds congregate on Sauvie Island.
Portland's reputation as a "green" metropolitan area is confirmed by a remarkable array of birding sites, offering a chance to find nearly every species of bird that regularly occurs in the Willamette Valley. From the Willamette River confluence east to the Sandy River Delta, the mighty Columbia River and nearby lakes and wetlands offer you views of magnificent wildlife.
