A 21-mile multi-use trail extending from SE Portland to the town of Boring, Oregon. It is designed to accommodate hikers, bikers, wheelchairs and horses.
The Springwater Corridor comprises the southeast segment of the 40-Mile Loop regional trail system encircling the greater Portland area.
The Springwater Corridor follows the banks of the Willamette River from downtown Portland to Johnson Creek and then parallels Johnson Creek through neighborhoods, industrial districts, park refuges, and wetlands—eventually ending in the town of Boring. Portland's light rail and city buses enhance options and ease of travel along the route's length.
For a recreational tour, start at the Johnson Creek Boulevard trailhead; it provides ease of parking and avoids the on-road section between Ninth and 19th Avenues. Sellwood Riverfront Park is an alternate start point and worth a visit if you don't mind this bit of road section. The downtown start at SE Fourth Avenue and SE Ivon Street is another option. To avoid an industrial section from mile 8, which is not well traveled during the week or at night, choose the trailhead east of the I-205 Multi-Use Path at Flavel Street. The Johnson Creek Boulevard trailhead sits at mile 6.
