Walk the Canemah Bluff Loop

1.6 Miles Total - 200 ft gain - Loop Trail

Originally added by Rachel Davidson

Willamette River overlook loop trail great for kids, wild flowers, and birding.

You'll never stumble upon Canemah Park unless you're really looking for it. Tucked away in the hills of Oregon City above the Locks, this residential park has a miniature-sized set of everything you'd expect in a children's park: Playground, picnic benches, bathrooms, and wide, forested trails. Dogs are only allowed on leash in the vicinity of the actual park, but to reach the Canemah Bluff Overlook, you'll have to leave them behind.

This gently-graded loop trail takes you past the main park area westward to the Canemah Pioneer Cemetery, which is on private property and usually gated and locked.

Easy Trails for Family

Great place to bring family. Trails are easy and short. Not a lot of parking though.

We want to acknowledge and thank the past, present, and future generations of all Native Nations and Indigenous Peoples whose ancestral lands we travel, explore, and play on.
