Willamette Greenway Professional Reviews and Guides

"The walk goes out and back along the west side of the Willamette River, with lovely views of Ross Island."

"This hike has been broken into several different sections, each with access points from the Portland Streetcar, MAX Light Rail, or TriMet Bus. From the Portland Streetcar stop (NS Line) at the base of the Portland Aerial Tram, walk north on SW Moody Avenue. You’ll pass Tilikum Crossing bridge, one of many opportunities to make a shorter loop. But even if you’re going all the way around, walk out to enjoy the view.

At the far end is the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) and a streetcar/MAX stop. Otherwise, continue up Moody, passing under the Ross Island Bridge and soon coming to River Parkway, 0.8 mile north of the tram."
