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.

Nice partly shaded walk with mountain dog, two kids, Big Daddy and Fat Amy. Ripe blackberries, some huckleberries and flowers. Deep Creek can be heard/seen/accessed at some points along the trail. Dog owners need to be more responsible and pack OUT their dog's doody. Leaving a full bag in the trail is bad manners and vile for those who end up packing it out for you. :-/

This was an easy pleasant ride. The trail is good for all skill levels and is bordered by wildflowers, berry bushes, and a creek is accessible in a few spots.

Dangerous , lots of homeless camped all along the road side. Avoid the Portland portion

This is a pretty walk...especially in the Powell Butte area but it gets kind of crowded. Best to go on a weekday. It's beautiful on a nice, sunny day with a breeze blowing through your hair.

boring and not much to look at....

Always a nice walk or bicycle ride not bad rollerblading on parts of it A bunch of offshoot trails to swamps streams and ponds also can enjoy Powell butte

I like the trail from Boring to Gresham, it's pretty and it's populated with walkers, runners, bikers, etc. Its paved, I run on it. Further west on the trail, nearer to Gresham it gets dirtier and you run into more of the street element that a lot of people don't like, all in all it's a great running trail (bear in mind all paved).

I started the trail at Johnson creek blvd in Portland, and hiked all the way to Boring, OR. The hike through Portland can be shady because of all the homeless that live on the trail so I make sure to bring my Glock for peace of mind. Once you get out of Portland into the country, the scenery is beautiful. the farther you are in between cities, the less crowded it gets. Perfect times to break out a fat joint and my camera. The trail is a lot of fun. Smokes a joint with a hippie named Darrell, He claims he owns the trail and has been living on it for 17 years. The loop is 40 miles, not 26

It's a fun place to take a walk except all the bums sleeping in the bushes getting drunk and shouting profanities , early morning is best.

This trail is for a lot of people a great cardio workout. Paved in most areas it's safe but I have seen some shady looking people. All in all great point to point trail gets you to the max lines and then the city is yours. Enjoy

From the directions this site gave me there was no trail! I was unable to find a trailhead anywhere :/ No luck, no review. If anyone knows of some nice spots around Sandy, Damascus and Happy Valley area to hike with 2 dogs, I would love to know! Let me in on the secret trails!
