The well-maintained trails of the fascinating Redmond Watershed Preserve feel like they are deep in the woods.

Note that dogs are not allowed on the trails.

Kids will love: Frogs, fungi and ferns.

Distance: With over 7 miles of trails in the park, you can put together a hike of whatever length you desire. The Tree Frog Loop is an ADA-accessible 0.3-mile path. The Trout Loop is about 0.6 miles.
