Springwater Corridor: Gresham to Boring Professional Review and Guide
"The Trail begins in southeastern metropolitan Portland and runs along Johnson Creek from Greshem to Boring. Tread: the first mile from Hogan Road is paved, the rest is packed gravel. Hazards: the trail receives moderate use and has several driveway crossings.The Gresham-to-Boring section of the Springwater Corridor is surprisingly secluded for being so close to a metropolitan area. It has fewer cross-streets than the section running from Gresham to McLoughlin. Early morning riders are likely to see a variety of wildlife, including deer, raccoons, herons, ducks, and coyotes. The ride begins near the Columbia Brick Works. This is Oregon’s oldest operating brick manufacturer. The converted rail line crosses Johnson Creek a couple of times and passes through Douglas-fir forests, pastures, and farms before reaching Boring. Boring was named for W.H. Boring; the name was not meant to describe town life. The Springwater Corridor ends at the dilapidated depot in downtown Boring."
