Road bikingGreat!

Fun. A few tricky turns on the east side since the path for bikes isn’t always clearly marked.

Amazing loop that offers great views of the Portland skyline. The only part I don't like is the sellwood trail itself. It spans a couple of miles and doesn't offer much in terms of views. I get bored easily on that stretch of road. Otherwise, I love this trail. There are many pedestrians and other cyclists along the entire trail, so watch out for that

Great trail. Much improved since last I walked it. Still some incomplete sections near Old Spaghetti Factory. It'll be even more fun when the waterfront goes all the way through to complete the loop.

Nice city trail walk. Westside of the trail near Sellwood bridge is blocked in places due to construction.

First to Review

This trail on the west side is very broken up and closed in spots (Nov 2015) from Moody Ave to the Sellwood bridge.
