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.
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).
This trail does not have any events yet.
