Tryon Creek’s Trillium Festival – THIS WEEKEND & FREE!
Did you know that Tryon Creek State Park is Oregon’s only state park within a major metropolitan area? Every day, visitors come to hike or stroll the nature trails through the verdant ravine between Boones Ferry Road and Terwilliger Boulevard. It’s right in our backyard!
Cyclists of all ages bike along the paved trail on the park’s eastern edge, stopping along the way to admire a trillium. This weekend is the annual Trillium Festival that is a great family activity including a native plant sale, guided nature hikes, children’s crafts and activities, local craft and edibles vendors, live music performances and more!
Another cool tidbit: Tryon Creek is one of the only streams in the metro area with a run of steelhead trout. Neato!
