The scenic Riverton Rail Trail—also known as “Sandy Road” by residents of Portland’s Riverton neighborhood—follows the former corridor of the Portland-Lewiston Interurban Railroad, which stopped carrying passengers in 1933. The trail connects to a number of neighborhood streets along its 1.5-mile length.
The trail is mostly flat as it runs through dense woodlands, and sounds from an adjacent freight railroad line occasionally interrupt the natural serenity. Portland Trails plans to extend the trail to connect with others in its extensive network. That work is ongoing.
A few on-street parking spots can be found at the end of Harris Avenue, as well as at the ends of the next two parallel streets, Luke and Farragut.
