Packed gravel, may as well be paved. Amazingly flat, any bike, any rider age can ride this. Only a handful of road crossings. The marsh crossing is very scenic. Very quiet and peaceful. Mostly shady.

Paved trail running through Scarborough Marsh. This is one of my favorites. Beware of Green Heads though!

One of my favorites to run. not challenging but you can get great distance! I'd you are parking in the Scarborough Marsh and cross the road, you can get just under ten miles if you go all the way to 195 ramp. it's a solid eight if you run to the foot bridge. if you cruise over the marsh you can squeeze in five miles by running to the end of the access road and back. I wish the would finish the rest of the trail connecting to Portland in that direction!
