Ankeny Rail Trail, which offers a short boardwalk in the Ankeny National Wildlife Refuge, is not a rail-to-trail project, but is instead named after a local bird, the Virginia Rail.
Located just south of Salem in western Oregon, the mile-long trail offers a scenic escape through wetlands and woodlands. Interpretive signs along the way tell you about the abundant wildlife. The trail ends at an observation point overlooking a pond, which provides a great place to watch for great blue herons, egrets, and other birds.
Ankeny National Wildlife Refuge is located at 2301 Wintel Road in Jefferson. The trail begins on the south side of Wintel Road, not far from the Wintel Road parking area.
