An awesome trail system connecting multiple parks in the area. Bike/Run/Walk for miles and get some exercise!

Technically this trail stretches from the Tualatin Hills Nature Park, down through the west Beaverton/ Sexton Mountain area and can comfortably get you to Barrow’s park near Big Al’s. The trail from end to end comes in at just over 8 miles, so a down and back by bike can make for a good workout as well as exploring shorter sections by foot. There is street parking anywhere along the city parks (green on map) and hopping on to the trail takes seconds (where the pin is on the map, you can just park on the side of the road). The trail follows a telephone line through the neighborhoods and is an awesome usage of the power line path to connect the cities parks. On a sunny afternoon it can be busy! But it never seems to be too crowded.

With some (google) route finding near the southern end of the trail you can access Walnut street heading East and connect to the Fanno Creek trail for many more miles of possibilities! If you’re up for putting on 20-30 miles by bike it can make for a fun Saturday brew pub ride! 

Otherwise just take your time strolling along, or hang out at one of the many playgrounds/ benches/ tennis courts. With places like this there is no excuse for not getting out and moving around!

FYI – the trail has some rolling hills, and uses paved switchbacks to get up and over a couple. Not too difficult but will get your heart pumping! 

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
