Still under development, the Gee Creek Trail will ultimately be the backbone of the City of Ridgefield’s trail network. Named after the stream it follows, the route will extend approximately 4 miles from the high school at the south end of the city, and connect to Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge, just north of the city limits.
Currently, there is an 0.6 mile, wheelchair-accessible section traversing Abrams Park completed. The park is the local access point, where visitors can amble along the partially wooded section out-and-back.
Or, you can undertake a slightly longer (1.8-mile) loop. Start at Abrams Park and follow the paved trail northwest. At Huron Road, head north for 0.3 miles to a gas pipeline easement, where trail the leads behind houses.
The trail in this section is graveled (the only section here that is) and is only 0.1 mile before returning to a paved walk on the northern edge of Abrams Park forest.
From here, the route heads east for a mile to N 23rd Place, then south to Pioneer Road (SR 501). Here, turn west, and make your way another 0.1 mile to the entrance to Abrams Park and your vehicle.
