2. Nature Loop

This flat trail loops through a grove of maple trees and river reeds. The Willamette River is on your left. As you come to junctions along the trail just keep left.

3. Dead End

I noticed a faint trail off to the left here. It goes a few feet before dead ending at a fence on someone's private property.

4. Loop Exit

Here is the point the nature trail exits back into Jasper Park.

5. Across the Field

Across this field you can find a very short trail that along the Willamette River. At the end you will end up on private property so don't go too far.
