Nyberg Creek Greenway

Nyberg Preserve lies on the south side of Nyberg Creek, which runs past the Fred Meyer Shopping Center, under I-5 and eastward to its confluence with the Tualatin River in Browns Ferry Park. This was a reed-canary grass monoculture which was excavated to create open water ponds adjacent to Nyberg Creek. Fish that swim up Nyberg Creek from the Tualatin River provide food for heron, fish eating ducks, kingfishers and an occasional Osprey. Canada geese, mallards and beaver frequent this wetland and baby ducks and geese are common during spring. There is no access into the marsh itself.

Noble Woods Park

This nature park is a treasure of Hillsboro - providing unspoiled recreation and wildlife viewing opportunities.

Paved and soft-surface paths lead through open and wooded natural areas with viewpoints, boardwalks and bridges over Rock Creek.

Benches are provided throughout the park along the paved pathway. There is also a picnic shelter.

Mt. Hood National Forest

Located twenty miles east of the city of Portland, Oregon, and the northern Willamette River valley, the Mt. Hood National Forest extends south from the strikingly beautiful Columbia River Gorge across more than sixty miles of forested mountains, lakes and streams to Olallie Scenic Area, a high lake basin under the slopes of Mt. Jefferson. Visitors enjoy fishing, camping, boating and hiking in the summer, hunting in the fall, and skiing and other snow sports in the winter.
