This trail may end up loved to death by the locals. On any day you will find constant groups of runners, hikers or walkers enjoying this easy trail. With all the trails in Portland, this is one of the few you are allowed to ride on. Recommended for wider tires but a mountain bike is not essential as this is... More

Just off Germantown road is a simple parking lot on the left. You can start at Thurman as well. This trail is magical; ferns, redwoods, maples and horse chestnuts form a leafy canopy so close to the city, but feeling far away.

A gravel roadway that winds along near the crest of the West Hills in NW Portland. Great spot for running and hiking, with numerous smaller spur trails ascending to the 10+ mile long Wildwood Trail.

I have mountain-biked this trail, but I have seen... More

Is marked with mileage markers every 1/4 mile. Water at start at Thurman, but no water on trail which means you have to carry water if doing all 11 miles out. Great trail through the woods, surface is mix of dirt and some gravel. Good running out and back trail and you can pick your distance easily based on the... More
