Springwater Corridor

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.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

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.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

beautiful trail, loved almost every minute of it

April, 2021 by amyliss5

I started at the Banks trailhead and rode to Vernonia. Plenty of parking when I arrived, and not a ton of people on the trail. It was really beautiful, and pretty quiet almost the entire 22 miles there. There were a few sections that were a bit bumpy but just be aware of your surroundings and you should be fine. Almost every trailhead had a bathroom and bike station to use, and there were also great views!

I-205 Multi-Use Path

Lots of garbage and campsites. Some sections are blocked with tents.
Neighborhood greenways are better.

Crown Zellerbach Trail

Great trail

March, 2021 by egmholo

We started at Bonnie Falls trailhead and headed up towards Vernonia. The signage was not very clear and we ended up an a logging road for an extra 4 miles. We should have gone under the bridge at about 14 miles. Instead we went on to the logging road. Good views of Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Adams but on the wrong road. So we backtracked after talking to some people. The trail was quite muddy in spots (mid-March). Most of the trail was packed dirt and gravel. It is paved from Scapoose to Ruley TH. Then it's trees, river, meadows. Very quiet and pleasant.

Burnt Bridge Creek Trail

great biking trail

January, 2021 by 1wheelwilson

I ride this almost daily in the summer , I really like having this trail so close to where I live. The only issues is you really need to pay attention the first time you ride it or you may get lost like I did. And since COVID-19 the homeless have really took over this area.

Westside Trail

Great Trail

December, 2020 by amynwill2003

The hills are steep but the scenery makes up for that. Peaceful, rolling vistas. A beautiful challenge that feels like a back country trek. I wouldn't try to bike it unless you are super fit. Some of the hills after Nora St will kick your butt just walking them..

Columbia Slough Trail

Nice trail along the Columbia Slough

October, 2020 by murpht12

Best access point is parking at Columbia Boulevard Water Treatment plaint and following the path and bridge across the slough. A little industrial in parts, but beautiful views of the slough and lots of birds (great blue herons, great egrets, hawks, sandpipers, etc.) and other animals (river otters, nutria, etc.). You'll have the trail mostly to yourself. I'd recommend going during the week to avoid going on a day where the raceway is up and running. Great hidden gem.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

My expectation were too high for this trail possibly

September, 2020 by moscowsharon

I didn't like how one direction was mostly uphill and the other direction was mostly downhill. I like a little more variety of up and down in each direction. And although it was pretty, I'm I don't understand why this trail is so popular.
