This off-road, family-friendly trail is perfect for biking, offering great views of Portland’s skyline and idyllic waterfront. The two trails described here, when combined, make for an excellent bike route that even beginners will enjoy. With plenty of rest stops along the way, picturesque views, and kid-friendly attractions (Did someone say sandy beach? Dog park? Playground? Train museum?), it’s no wonder these wide, flat trails are Portland’s most popular havens for bikers, joggers, and dog-walkers. Be prepared to share the trail.
