“Another nice ride”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

There are some nice interconnected trails in Portland and this is one of them. Scenic and pleasant; would be good for strollers, families and leisurely bikers (like us). Not very crowded, even on Memorial Day weekend. Overall a nice ride.

Good walk for strolling, running, dog walking, people watching, looking at houses and skyline, plus the exercise park at one end, lots of parking.

“65 years and counting”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

From the time of being a little girl watching the storms roll in until buying a retirement home within walking distance I have appreciated any walk a few times a year. Watching the natural world in this wonderful setting in a live long joy.

“Great running trail”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

This is a great 3.5 mile trail...part blacktop but mostly pea gravel. There is really only one hill and not major. Ran there everyday while visiting. Handy porta potties and interesting sites.

“A nice walk with a lovely view”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

This is the path for walking, jogging (or bike riding). I like to walk 1 1/2 miles from the big parking lot and turn back making my walk 3 miles and avoiding the noisy park that goes near a highway. As I walk along the water's edge, I often see great blue & other herons.
