Please respect the outdoors by practicing Leave No Trace. Learn more about how to apply the principles of Leave No Trace on your next outdoor adventure here.

Opening recently in 2009, Cooper Mountain Nature Park boasts 231 acres of diverse landscape and 3.5 miles of gravel hiking trails. With a playground and easy access to hillside trails, Cooper Mountain attracts both young and old alike. Along the path you will find a diverse landscape of oak prairies, wetlands, ponds, and forested landscapes. Nestled within the Beaverton metro area with urban developments to the north, Cooper Mountain is a common escape from the urban life.

The Nature House holds educational programs and houses the restrooms, a water fountain, and is powered by solar panels. Birds that can be seen at the park include the bald eagle, red-tailed hawk, great horned owl. Other animal species in the park include the northern red-legged frog, western gray squirrel, and northern alligator lizard. Many species are described in informational signs throughout the park. Many wildflower species are described throughout the park and can likely be seen in the spring.

Note that there is poison oak present, so the park asks that you stay on trail.
