Easy, flat, quiet. A nice even walking trail with plenty of nature if you pay attention. Also perfect for a quick evening outing with the dog where you don't have to worry.

Maybe good to run down and back, all in all pretty boring

There is a nice little side trail with a cute Creek, not much else.

I haven't been on this trail in sometime because of how dangerous it can be. Go to 1000 acres in troutdale instead

Great place to ride around with your bike. My only complaint is the traffic it gets.

The nature trail section about a mile in is really the only part of the trail that has anything to look at. The turn around point is just a fence and a bench. Not really worry the whole trek.

Mostly flat gravel trail in a great location. Super quiet and we only saw a handful of other people while we were there. Perfect for a Sunday afternoon stroll.

This is a mostly flat trail, though not ADA accessible given some of the occasional potholes along the trail. The trail is gravel, not paved, so it is great for mountain bikes and some commuters, but I'd be weary of bringing a road bike if the tires could puncture early.

The trail follows a river for most of it, and the walk is quiet and peaceful. If you want some more nature, keep an eye out at the .8 mile mark to your left add you are headed out. There is an off shoot of the trail that runs parallel to the main trail but is close to what one might think of as a hiking trail. It is still easy in difficulty, but much more beautiful and follows closer to the river with view points. The parallel trail runs almost 2 miles, most of the length, so if you miss the turn of you will really be missing out. The reason I mention it is that it isn't intrinsically obvious where it starts and that it continues, so keep a look out.

This would also be a great jogging trail if you stayed on the main path.

Parking at the trail head is behind (and down hill from) the shell station.

I have lived near and enjoyed this trail since I was allowed to ride my bike away from home alone, a good nine years. I have seen it change as metro has "updated" the trail. I still love this trail and anyone who wants a good afternoon hike should try it, just please be responsible and follow trail rules. I have watched my favorite childhood trail quickly turn to a messy public park, and I don't want it to become like some of the grosser parts of the springwater trail.

Mostly car free. Mostly flat. Mostly paved. Scenic in some places.
