Park
“Miles of Oregonesque trails through forests, ferns, and rhododendrons. There are a few parking spaces for cars, but one can also walk from the studio over the highway bridge (at your own risk). There is a plan in the works for a pedestrian bridge that would give easier walking access to this park. ”
