The park entrance and parking lot is located just off of Interstate 84, a few minutes northeast of Troutdale. Here you'll find restrooms, and even doggy waste bags. From here, the adventure begins! Once you're about 100 feet away from the parking lot, you're allowed to release Fido from his leash.
The expansive network of trails in this park combine to form the Sandy River Delta Loop. These trails include Boundary, Meadow, Ranch Dike, Old Channel, and Confluence Trails. Doggos need to be leashed within 100 feet of the Confluence Trail, but otherwise are allowed off-leash. The trails can get muddy do to the frequent rain in Portland, but the main gravel trail is fine to take even when it's wet. You may want to bring a towel for your car!
On your travels, you'll come across a variety of flora and fauna, and great views of Mount Hood on a clear day. After working up a sweat on the trails, your pupper can even take a splash in the Sandy River! This river has lovely sandy shores and shallow water. It's ideal for a game of fetch in the water, roughhousing with some new furry friends, or teaching a puppy how to swim.
Dogs are more than welcome here, and some would even say Sandy River Delta belongs more to the dogs than the humans. Please make use of the doggy waste bags provided and always pick up after your pal. Bring enough water to share too.
In this neck of the woods, there's no better way to spend some quality time outdoors with your canine companion than the Sandy River Delta!
