The I-205 Multi-use Path parallels Interstate 205 between Vancouver, Washington, just north of the Columbia River and Oregon City, Oregon. The trail breaks in a few places: in Oregon City near the shopping mall along Main Street (easily bridged via Main Street) and between High Rocks City Park and the Harley Davidson dealership, then between the junctions of I-205 at SR 212/224 and I-205 at 82nd Drive.
The route also follows alongside part of the MAX Green Line rail. The trail is popular with commuters and recreationists alike, with access to parking at public transportation stops along the way and other amenities (e.g., restrooms and drinking fountains). The various segments are connected by bike routes and bike lanes. To connect the northern segment to the Gladstone segment, use bike lanes on 82nd Drive. To connect the Gladstone segment to the southern segment, use bike lanes and routes on Agnes and Main Streets.
