The Waterfront Bike Path follows the Willamette River in downtown Portland from the Marquam Bridge north to the Steel Bridge. Although short, the trail offers scenic views of the city skyline and waterway. Along the way, it passes through Tom McCall Waterfront Park, where you can find restrooms, historical attractions and an incredible fountain with 185 water jets.
For a pleasant loop, cross one of the four bridges along the route to reach the Eastbank Esplanade on the opposite bank. Near the trail's southern end, you can also access Tilikum Crossing, a spectacular bridge serving pedestrians and bicyclists as well as the MAX light rail and other forms of public transportation.
At the south end of the trail, parking is available off Naito Parkway near the Hawthorne Bridge. On-street parking can also be found on the side streets leading to Tom McCall Waterfront Park.
