When complete, the Fanno Creek Greenway will be a 15-mile paved network of fully accessible urban trails, linking two counties and five cities: Beaverton, Tigard, Tualatin, Durham, and southwest Portland. As of autumn 2011, about half of the trail system is finished.
The trail courses along Fanno Creek and will eventually run between the Willamette River in the southwest section of Portland to Fanno Creek's confluence at the Tualatin River. Traversing wetlands, forests, parks and neighborhoods, the trail corridor is home to much wildlife. In addition, many parks and recreation venues provide diversions along the way.
Fanno Creek Greenway Trail has numerous access points, including from various parks and via neighborhoods. Some are as follows:
The Garden Home Recreation Center is located at the northwest corner of Garden Home Road and Oleson Road. Use the north parking lot to access the trail at the northeast corner of the lot.
Vista Brook Park is south of Scholls Ferry Road on 88th Avenue and has a small parking lot. A path loops through the park and joins the main portion of the Fanno Creek Trail along the park's southern border.
The Fanno Creek Park /Denney Road trailhead is located in the northern-most portion of Fanno Creek Park, just west of Highway 217, on the south side of Denney Road. Bicycle parking is also available. Look for the big, green, fish bike rack.
The Fanno Farmhouse, a historic resource, is located at 8405 SW Creekside Place in the Creekside Corporate Center. Parking is available during evenings and weekends on the south side of the house. A short trail leads west from the house, across Fanno Creek to the main Fanno Creek Greenway Trail.
Really nice trail that connects three parks. Decent enough tree cover on some to keep rain at bay.
Pretty smooth for the trails I've been on here. A good mix of parks, neighborhood, and through some foresty bits. Fun hills to slalom or speed down, only slightly less fun on the way back up. Not worth skating south of Tigard, as the trail conditions quickly degrade with narrow, steep hills behind backyards, and it ends in a neighborhood, so not even worth all the effort.
I found this trail on this app, and since I did it has brought me so much joy! It’s relatively flat and the asphalt is quite smooth (with a few exceptions) so whether you want to bike, run, rollerblade, skateboard, or something else, this path should meet your needs. I go almost everyday and can’t foresee that habit changing until the cold weather sets in and gets prohibitive for rolling outdoor adventures.
I have lived in the Tualatin / Tigard area for 40 years and have walked and biked portions of this trail but never knew it linked so easily for 10+ miles. Yesterday I rode it with two of my favorite people From Tualatin Community Park to Garden Home. Had a great visit and coffee at the Starbucks at the end of the trail. And the rode back. Wonderful Trip!
Might be because there are not great paved trails around or its just not that much of an 'in' thing in the PNW.
Better than anything else close by, as its relatively flat terrain which is good for skaters of all skill levels but being able to stop is a must.
Hard to navigate at times as the trail breaks off/disjointed by 210 and 217, so had to check it out during multiple trips.
Fast trail in tight quarters to begin if you start off at the trailhead by Garden Home Rec Center off Oleson Rd, making it a decent workout on the way back.
Some rough area of pavement towards to south end of the trail and bridges to negotiate. Nice peaceful areas as well as nice shade.
Hope this helps if you're a inline skater.
Nice paved trail but can be closed/rerouted due to high water in a few sections from fall to spring or after a heavy rain shower.
I ride this trail 3-4 times a week. It is my go to trail for exercise on my bike. The trail is fairly flat.
After heavy rain, some of the trail can become flooded. So taking a detour to avoid standing water, into a neighborhood, may be necessary.
There is a Frisbee golf course along part of the trail, and lots of parks with playground equipment. So this trail can become very congested at times, so watch your speed, and let people know when you are passing.
There are a couple of spots where the trail ends and starts again, so you have to use surface streets to connect them, not a huge deal, but worth noting. Check it out on Google maps and you will see what I'm talking about.
All in all a great trail to ride/run/have fun on!!!
This is a nice long, mostly flat, trail if you need to rack up some running miles it's a great option. Downside is that it's quite exposed to the sun and there is very limited plant life along the away making it really hot and dry during the summertime (BRING H2O, there are many children's parks on the route but no water fountains for some reason).
