One of amazing benefits of living in Portland is that we get not only the city life but also easy access to nature. We don’t have to travel far to be in the mountains, the desert or the beach. Each week (ideally) we find ourselves exploring a new nature area around Portland. Most recently we spent an afternoon exploring Camassia Natural Area.
Camassia Natural Area is a funny spot to get to as the main access point is at the end of a residential road. As you enter you go over a teeny bridge and you’ll find yourself grabbing a map/guide and starting on your way around the loop. The loop is numbered and in your brochure you can stop, read and learn a little more about this really interesting nature area.
This loop is pretty short so it’s a fun spot to bring little ones who insist on walking everywhere.
Overall we loved Camassia Natural Area. I will warn you though that there are no restrooms – really my only con about this spot.
