Portland Parks and Recreation
In a town with no shortage of impressive bike paths and walking trails, the Springwater Corridor stands out for its length and quality of scenery. The paved multi-use path follows a former rail corridor and is lined with blackberries, dogwoods, and willows. The original section of the path was completed in 1996, with more sections added in the intervening decades. The Eastbank Esplanade has made it possible to bike from the Inner Southeast all the way to Boring without having to ride on roadways with cars. A tip for food-minded adventurers: The Corridor runs past Cartlandia’s 32 different food carts.
