Walk the Canemah Bluff Loop

Canemah

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.
