Flood Season

Being located in the low-lying river valley, Oxbow is subject to regular seasonal flooding from approximately November through April every year. Please note that flooding may cause unexpected site closures. Announcements will be made on our homepage and social media. Follow us on Facebook, or Instagram for updates.

Our trail system is now open to the public on weekends!

Created to provide a family-friendly place to spend time outdoors during the COVID-19 pandemic, our trails are now open to the public Wednesday – Friday 3pm – 7pm and on weekends 10am-4pm (when the Farm Stand is open). A perfect way to extend a run or bike ride on the Snoqualmie Valley Trail, spend a day with little ones on a variety of family-friendly trails (punctuated with lots of breaks in the Kids’ Farm!), and learn about habitat restoration. Bring a picnic to add to fresh organic Oxbow veggies from the Farm Stand.
CSA shareholders and Oxbow members are welcome to walk the trails and explore the grounds 3-7pm on Wednesdays during CSA pickup hours.

From the Snoqualmie Valley Trail
Take the pedestrian entrance from the Snoqualmie Valley Trail, cross the bridge toward the Farm Stand, and you’ll find yourself at the nexus of Oxbow’s new trail system.
Several honeybuckets and handwashing stations are located throughout Oxbow.
An important word about dogs: With the exception of registered service animals, dogs are not allowed on our property and may not be left in our parking area. We love animals, but ask that if you are visiting Oxbow for any reason, please leave your furry friends at home! Our conservation partners and ongoing restoration projects and studies thank you.
