Alderwood State Wayside

Hwy 36 between Junction City and Triangle Lake

Purchased from Lane County in 1931. Day-use picnic facilities were originally developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps around 1935. According to local lore, during the prohibition era (1920s), liquor was distilled clandestinely at a nearby location called Burp Holler. In 1961, the name was briefly considered for application to the wayside but the proposal was unsuccessful.

Status(late May 2018): Closed. Bridge was damaged and blocked off. Facilities: Bathroom was clean and not smelly. Parking lot didn't have potholes. Pile of garbage was left around the parking lot. Looked like someone was trying to live there. Creeped me out. Left without being able to hike.

Take personal pride in sharing partial ownership along with the rest of the community who actually keeps clean and takes care of this park

I love stopping here to enjoy the old-growth tree feeling. Small and quaint.
