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.
