Lebanon Oregon favorite trail walks (Beta version)
We're in the process of updating our Find a Trail page and have created several walks that leave from popular locations.
We're still adding photos and verifying the information for accuracy, but we'd love getting feedback from you about these walks! And we'd love to get photos or videos that you'd like to share. [[Need a mechanism for the public to do this.]]
If you get lost following these instructions, that's something we'd like to know too!
An easy level walk on paved surfaces from Boulder Falls Inn to the South Santiam River and back. View of the South Santiam River from one point on the Marks Slough Trail.
An easy level walk on paved surfaces from the Had Irvine trailhead around the Marks Slough Loop and back. View of the South Santiam River from one point on the Marks Slough Trail. This is a shorter version of the Boulder Falls to the River Walk.
This trail is a great lunchtime walk! It starts at the Oregon Veterans Home in Lebanon and follows a section of the Northside Community Trail out to the end of the trail on the west. Besides the Veterans Home, this section of the trail offers a view of several large Lebanon companies that normally remain hidden away from view: Pennington Seed, Entek, Linn Gear, and Laticrete. If you want to extend the walk past the end of the Northside Community Trail, you can also walk along Twelfth Street and see the Cascade Performing Arts Center and even stop off at the Summit Ace Home and Garden Center on Tangent.
Explore Lebanon’s crown jewel, Cheadle Lake, with this walk from the parking lot on the north to the parking lot on the south with an optional detour along the Island Loop trails.
Cheadle Lake used to be a mill pond, but it has been rehabilitated into a beautiful lake with great views and numerous types of wildlife. Look for bald eagles, ospreys, pond turtles, Canada geese, and river otters. And look up to see if you can identify the Green Peter and Bald Peter peaks to the south, Ridgeway Butte to the east, Middle Ridge to the west.
