Explore Oxbow’s trail system, discover conservation sites, find animal tracks, and more!

Hours: Wednesday – Friday 2PM-6PM and Weekends 10AM-4PM (Farm Stand hours)

Note, Oxbow is open to the public for picnicking, hiking the trails, season u-pick, and shopping during Farm Stand hours. However, while summer camp is in session, guests are not allowed beyond the orchard before 3PM on weekdays.
Created to provide a family-friendly place to spend time outdoors during the COVID-19 pandemic, our trails are now open to the public. 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.

Site Notes and Considerations

Several honeybuckets and handwashing stations are located throughout Oxbow.
An important word about dogs: We recently updated our policies, and pets are now welcome in our parking lot and Farm Stand area. Due to regulations on our organic certification and ongoing conservation efforts around Oxbow, pets are not allowed on trails, fields, living playground, barn, and orchard. Please respect signage and pet-friendly zones. If you’re not sure, ask a team member, we’re happy to help!
