I wouldn't consider this a trail given that it's asphalt along with crossing multiple busy roads with crosswalks. Maybe a good walking, jogging, or biking path but nowhere near a trail. I saw possible areas where homeless might camp in first few miles but no homeless.

I walk/hike this quite often. I prefer the Boring Trail Head to Gresham area. Once you get past Gresham, heading towards Portland, there is a severe homeless problem that needs to be addressed. Be prepared to dodge bikers, as it's a very popular route. If you want a less traveled trail, you can get on the Cazadero Trail heading south from Boring. It's about 6 miles round trip. More secluded as you travel farther in the Deep Creek canyon area.

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.

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

This is the Spring Water Trail. Paved, no elevation gain. I walk/bike it every week. Its not a hike, just a stretch and walk before diner. I'm posting this review in case someone not from the area looks it up. Its been listed as difficult but it is very easy.

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.

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 (bare 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
