Hieronymus Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Heironymus Park sits at the northern edge of Hamilton along the Bitterroot River. The wetland park occupies 66 acres of floodplain along the east bank of the river, including 1,200 feet of river frontage. Within the park are grassy fields, lush riparian shrubs, and riverfront stands of ponderosa pine and cottonwoods. The Corvallis Canal, an old but active irrigation ditch, fronts the park. Across the canal on the southeast corner of the park is a six-acre pond. The loop trail mainly circumscribes the park. It follows the canal, circles the fishing pond, explores the river, and meanders through the wetlands. Bald eagles can be spotted perched in the riverfront cottonwoods. Along the trail are interpretive panels describing native wildlife and the area’s history, including the Salish Indian culture and how they helped Lewis and Clark in the Bitterroot Valley."
