Big, old-growth trees typically have a few things in common: they grow in temperate climates with significant rainfall,  they live on protected land, and they are close to rivers.  Oxbow Regional Park provides all of the above, and the Oxbow Nature Trail will lead you into the heart of the old-growth forest of Douglas fir, western hemlock, bigleaf maple, red alder, black cottonwood and western red cedar.  Really, any combination of the trails in the park will make for a great hike. The nature trail, however, is perfect for exploring the variety of the area.  This includes the old-growth forest, a long stretch of the Sandy River shoreline and Elk Meadow, where you’re likely to run into black-tailed deer.
