Burnt Bridge Creek Trail

not safe after dark

May, 2022 by scott.nordeen

There's a huge homeless encampment between Meadow Brook Marsh Park and Meadow Homes Park on the east side. You're riding along then it's like a state park campground with dozens of tents in the meadow. Please clean this up as I didn't feel safe towards evening with the type of activities going on. What a waste of a beautiful trails and a slap to taxpayers. I wouldn't think of taking my kids through here. What a shame because it's one of the nicest trails in the area.

Good trail

May, 2022 by lenin_tl

Good trail to the zoo and Washington park. You can go all the way to Timbers stadium!

Trolley Trail (OR)

nice for an afternoon ride

March, 2022 by hudrlik1

Enjoyed going down this path on a sunny afternoon. A good mix of slight down & uphill so it never feels like too much work to just keep going. When the path crosses the main streets sometimes it can be difficult to spot where it continues vs where there’s just a large (rocky & car filled) bike lane. Once you’re back on trolley trail though it’s super easy and pleasant. Lots of folks with their dogs out when I went on a Friday afternoon.

I-205 Multi-Use Path

I rode it last summer and it was an awful experience. Lots of trash and homeless and it smelled like feces in some parts.

Burnt Bridge Creek Trail

pleasant fall ride

October, 2021 by doughuntinc_tl

This is a well surfaced path sometimes a bit confusing as to where to go to continue but google maps and or TrailLink really help. There is a bit of homelessness under the overpasses but well off the trail. Park worker’s were abundant and really trying to keep things picked up. All in all a very pleasant 1.5 hour ride round trip

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

great path, parking is tight

July, 2021 by hudrlik1

I rode my gravel bike from the banks trailhead and the path is plenty doable up until around 4.6mi in. At that point it starts getting pretty rough, but it’s a nice fun path otherwise, friendly for all types (there were plenty of families & kids scattered around the first chunk of the path). Parking is quite limited & tight, so plan ahead carefully!

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

Fun If You Have The Right Equipment

July, 2021 by sandco2009

I rode the full 45 miles from Banks Bike shop where I rented an old, heavy mountain bike (the best they had). This trail is not for road bikes or old, heave mountain bikes. You will want a gravel bike or cyclocross at the least. Best option is a new hard tail mountain bike.

Most of the trail is smooth paved but there are several areas of rough terrain. There are big holes usually in the middle of the trail with a painted circle around them. Also tree roots have pushed the path up in several locations. The edges of the bridges where their wooden floor touches the asphalt have a considerable dip in the asphalt so you'll have to jump these sections.

About 3 miles outside of Banks there is a 2% grade for about 10 miles. Alternating between 1% and 2%. It gives you time to enjoy the scenery! Recommend walking the switchbacks if you have rim brakes. Good luck on their climbs as a few sections range from 8% - 12% There is a repair stand near the 12 mile mark. I didn't see anywhere to refill water but I also didn't stop for the restrooms, maybe it's there.

Think of it as an Adventure

June, 2021 by dmurphy52

This ride will never be in the Rails-to-Trails Hall of Fame, but if you like a bit of an adventure, and can tolerate a wide variety of settings over a short period of time, give it a go!

I rode the length of the trail, starting and ending in Boring, and extended the ride a bit by crossing over the Willamette to Portland using the Iron Bridge.

Boring to Gresham, lush and green, few streets, very pleasant. About 7 miles in toward Portland, the side effects of America's struggle to provide adequate housing for those that desire it begin to show up: abandoned shopping carts, piles of trash, burn piles. The homeless camps from Mile 13 into about Mile 9 are ramshackle, creative, and sometime surprisingly high tech. Look close, and listen, and you'll see solar panels, hear generators running, and see discarded propane tanks. At no point did I encounter any hostility or aggression from the camp dwellers.

A bit farther down the trail (mile 8ish?) there is a discontinuity in the trail, and for possibly a mile you follow a tree-lined city street. If there were signs, I missed them, and was grateful to a bicycle riding couple that got me back on track.

Back on the path, a nice run into Portland, with a very pleasant section that parallels the river, popular with walkers, runners, bikers, twisting along the shoreline, dipping down for a bit onto a very cool pontoon supported metal pathway that is designed to adjust itself for changes in river level. There is one more on the street section here, but it is well marked/signed.

Turn around, head back, mild grade to climb, gaining maybe 600 feet over 15ish miles. Not hard. The street crossings come and go, and do require both caution and patience. With my slight extension to the other side of the river, 47 mies roundtrip.

So..excellent ride to cross off on your Rails-to-Trails list. Best approached with curiosity, patience, and acceptance of life styles that do not resemble your own. Didn't see many kids (some, but not many), and between the fairly heavy human traffic (skate boarders, in-line skaters, runners, walkers, etc.), the frequent street crossings and the sections that are impressively trashed out, I can see why many parents would choose a tamer adventure. Glad I did it (really!), don't feel the need to do it again any time soon.

Rock Creek Trail (OR)

good quick ride

May, 2021 by hudrlik1

Good for a quick ride, relatively flat throughout. Watch out if the cottonwood trees are in bloom, and careful of the traction speed bumps on the bridge portion — they can make for an unsteady ride on a road bike for beginners.

Once-Great Trail Badly In Need Of Repaving

May, 2021 by lbuchholz

This gem of a trail has been my go-to for over 15 years, including the outstanding refurb of Buxton Trestle and the 'final mile' into namesake Banks trailhead (used to just end outside of town). Many happy memories. While the pavement is still fine for mountain bikes and most hybrids, it has become increasingly unsafe for the skinny tire set, and any repairs have been mere band-aids. The unsafe ruts and root heaves have been helpfully painted as a warning, but I was still knocked off-trail into the grass last week by an unmarked bump (with both hands on the handlebars). I hope Oregon State Parks has a plan for repaving, considering they do a great job of cutting back blackberries and equipping trailheads with tools/workstands.

Pro-tip: Just north of the crest, near mile marker 11.5, stop by the small clear-cut on a calm day. Sheltered from traffic noise on highway 47, it's among the quietest spots I've experienced in the Portland metro area.

Burnt Bridge Creek Trail

Not Great for Little Kids. Unpleasant Urban Views

May, 2021 by lincoln.barbour

This ride looks promising based on the photos, but it’s pretty grim in reality. We went with or 6 and 8 year old and they struggled on the many big climbs. The trail crosses a few major roads and is a little daunting for little kids. Much of the trail looks into people’s backyards and/or power lines. And few homeless camps and trash now pepper they area near overpasses. Would not recommend if you’re going for anything other than exercise

Westside Trail

Fabulous!

April, 2021 by geconn

What a terrific trail! We took our e-bikes out on their maiden voyage and, boy, was I glad to have the pedal assist! There are some steep hills, and depending on your fitness level or bike type, they may be a deal-breaker. But if you’re intrepid and game, it’s a beautiful, quiet trail with great views. Both Mount Hood and Mount Saint Helens were clearly visible today. We took MAX to the Merlo/158th stop and accessed there and made it all the way down to Scholls Ferry. I’d do this one again.
