Native Americans once herded elk and other animals off adjacent cliffs then floated the slaughtered animals to this island. Accessible only by water and only when the river is high, this natural wildlife habitat features hiking trails that wind around the bay, where blue herons feed and sturgeon swim in some of the deepest waters of the Willamette River. Be cautious if you stray from the paths; this is a wild area, complete with poison oak. Stick to the trail and it's a great hike.
