Amazing views. Not a lot of parking and no amenities but a relaxing place to look at the valley below. The only problem is the rude bicyclists on the roads leading to it and in the park itself. I guess they think they own everything.

Perhaps we didn't explore far enough but we didn't find the great... More

This little known park offered an excellent view of the mountains to the north. There were a few trails, but rather limited hiking. We encountered only a couple of other visitors during our mid-week mid-summer visit. A wonderful, quiet find!

Tough to beat and a great short cut to and from Gaston Oregon to the rest of the world. Not well identified but if you start climbing you are on the right road. Just a little bit of a parking area and quite a view.

This place is such a beautiful viewpoint. Hard to capture it with a camera. I take all my friends there, to see it. Dress up cause the temperature is way lower up there, at that high elevation.

For a somewhat clear and sunny Fall day with leaves changing colors, this place was not very busy...when we got there 3 other vehicles were parked, one arrived before we left. Except for some broken glass in the parking lot, it appeared to be well kept and clean. Nice views. Probably could have gotten better views had we walked down... More

Steep, scenic winding drive with pretty views about 15 minutes from Newberg. Small park with dark, wooded area on one side as you enter and an open field / view area by parking lot on the other. A few picnic tables in the trees with no view. Small bathroom building - very basic porta-potty / no sink. No view from... More

This is a very small park, you can see all of it in about 20 min. The views however are very good and worth taking a look at. It just wont take very long. Nice winding drive to the park though.

This is a small but beautiful park that overlooks the valley, offering a view of the beautiful farming country. In and around the picnic area sentinel evergreens stand majestic. This park offers a lovely setting for a picnic or a photo shoot, whether in sunshine or in fog.

This is not a large park, so don't come expecting to hike miles and miles. It does however offer great views of the surrounding country side and a nice cool place (under the trees) to enjoy a picnic lunch.
