Notes:The Luckiamute Landing State Natural Area is located at the confluence of the Santiam, Willamette, and Luckiamute Rivers. A North and a South Unit are located along Buena Vista Road. At the North Unit a one-mile trail leaves the parking lot to the southeast along the Willamette River. Or a mile and a half route past a gate on a dirt road along a field and through the woods takes you to a sand bar at the mouth of the Luckiamute River. At the South Unit you have the opportunity to explore some river bottom land and a couple of gravel pits.
For the North Unit: From Buena Vista travel 3 miles south, turning left on wooden bridge just past the concrete bridge over the Luckiamute River. Continue on gravel road half a mile to parking lot. For the South Unit: do not turn, just continue south on Buena Vista Road, Trailhead parking is on your left.
