Jordan Lake State Recreation Area: Seaforth Pond Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The Seaforth Recreation Area is centrally located in Jordan Lake State Recreation Area, right off US 64 west of Wilsonville. The Pond Trail is nearly a complete loop. It begins on the western side of the Seaforth parking lot and traverses a mixed pine-and-hardwood forest. Boardwalks along the way keep your hiking shoes from trudging through the wetland portions of the trail, where you will find buttonbush, black needlerush, and other wetland plants. Along the way, the path offers enjoyable views of Jordan Lake and passes by three small ponds. The trail circles back around to the parking lot and ends at picnic pavilion nine, a large, covered shelter on the edge of Jordan Lake to the north of the designated swimming beach. Bring your swimsuit and enjoy a day at Seaforth after hiking the Pond Trail."
