“Jungle Hike in Albany, OR!!”

Takena Landing Park
Ranked #11 of 26 things to do in Albany
Attraction details
Reviewed 23 May 2015

Today's hike along the Willamette River was noted by gangly blackberry vines and outstretched Nettles reaching for the sun, narrowing the trail down to a slender one lane in some places. Due to a mild winter and that it's not yet summer season when the trail will be trimmed, I would not recommend biking or wearing shorts!

Great 3.14 mile trail on dirt through the woods along the river. Mountain bike easily or walk. Mostly shaded.

The only thing difficult about this trial would be the length for the elderly. This trail lacks in depth but for a trail located with in city limits it is recommended for those with friends of the canine variety...there is a tiny loop located at the end of the trail so the walk is basically a straight line to and from. The trail is well maintained and also decent for novice runners looking for a short 3.5 mile run.

The trail is about 1.75 miles long (3.5 total distance to end and back) and is not very wide. The brush is tall and the views are limited....but for a quick 25-40 jog/run, go ahead and enjoy this trail....better than running on the hard pavement roads!

the park is beautiful the trail is well maintained. i walk my dog there about three times a week. good for hikers 2.7 mile, bikers, joggers. the high school cross country team hits it every wednesday. very cool on hot days most places can be easily walked two or three abreast can be a problem early morning and evenings because of homeless people but police do pretty good job of patrolling

It is close to down town Albany. A great place to hike.
We have a picnic lunch and enjoy the river.
Take the time to look at the flood makers.
