This up and down trail takes you through many different forest types: oak woodland, mature maple, and Douglas fir. Look for wood ducks on Gray Creek. Rest on one of the benches to watch for elk, deer, bobcat and other woodland wildlife around the forest margins.
To reach the William L. Finley National Wildlife Refuge, travel south 10 miles from Corvallis or north 7.5 miles from Monroe, to milepost 93 on Highway 99W. Turn west on Finley Road. The trail begins at the Display Pond parking lot, on the west side of the refuge.
