Another example of Portland’s e?orts to get people out and about without their cars, the Springwater Corridor o?ers everyone a place to recreate (mostly) away from tra?c. Roughly following the meanders of Johnson Creek (a focus of major wildlife and stream-bank restoration projects) for much of its length, the Springwater Trail takes you through idyllic bottomlands, alongside the tranquil stream, and beside wild parkland—and also through gritty industrial areas and roughedged neighborhoods—on its way toward the wide-open spaces beyond Gresham. It’s a ?at, easy ride that shows you many di?erent faces of Portland.
