Spring Valley Access is a 177-acre, day-use park along the west bank of the Willamette River. The entrance is 10 miles north of Salem along Highway 221, also known as Wallace Road. You can take a quiet walk or mountain bike 5 miles of multi-use trails. The trails are great places to hone your mountain biking skills if you're new to the sport. Several areas along the trail are perfect for casting your fishing line into the river. See the Willamette River Greenway-Spring Valley Access map for trail details.
The access is part of the Willamette River Water Trail. A river mile sign faces upstream and identifies the location as you paddle downstream. A gravel beach in the summer months is a great pull out to stretch your legs or find the vault restroom. Find more information about the Willamette River Trail at http://willamettewatertrail.org/.
Spring Valley Access is part of the Willamette River Greenway system of parks and conservation areas managed by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Deparatment. These areas were established in 1960-1970 to protect and preserve the natural, scenic, historic and recreational qualities of lands along the Willamette River. Totaling nearly 5,000 acres on 90 parcels of land, these properties continue to offer places to recreate and enjoy nature near many communities in the Willamette Valley.
