This greenway is located on the western edge of the Sandy River. It begins near the confluence of Beaver Creek and extends south along the Sandy River. The greenway is 20.43 acres in size. The site is composed of several parcels of land along the slopes overlooking the Sandy River. Most of the land consists of steep to moderate hillsides and is heavily wooded. Public access is discouraged due to the steep and fragile nature of the slopes. There is one small developed area with a path and picnic table located at 1693 SE Lewellyn Avenue.
