The open farmland, pastures and wetlands along this loop route are known for wintering waterfowl, egrets and raptors, including Rough-legged Hawk. At the NE corner of the loop, scan fields in winter for Short-eared Owl and watch for Barn Owl at dusk. Bald Eagle nests here in spring. A small county park by Scappoose Airport at the start of Honeyman Rd has restrooms and picnic tables ($3 day-use fee), as well as RV camping under oak woods that host White-breasted Nuthatch. Black-headed Grosbeak and Bullock’s Oriole nest nearby. The Crown Zellerbach Trail can be hiked either S from the intersection of Crown Zellerbach Rd and West Lane Rd (1.9 mi to Multnomah Channel), or for a shorter walk, in either direction from the intersection of Dike Rd and Columbia Ave. Wetlands toward the S end of the trail host American Bittern. White-tailed Kite is sometimes seen.
From US Hwy 30 at MP 20 in Scappoose, turn E on Crown Zellerbach Rd and go 0.4 mi, then N on West Lane Rd for 0.9 mi to fork with Honeyman Rd. Turn R on Honeyman Rd and follow for 7.5 mi loop route that returns to Scappoose via Columbia Ave (or continue S on Dike Rd for 3 mi to rejoin US Hwy 30 S of Scappoose).
