Springwater Corridor: McLoughlin Boulevard to Gresham Professional Review and Guide

"The trail runs along Johnson Creek, through the southern Portland metropolitan area. Tread: From McLoughlin Boulevard through Gresham, the trail is paved. Hazards: The trail is heavily used on sunny weekends and has numerous driveway and street crossings.

If you park at the Johnson Creek Boulevard Trailhead, go west 0.5 mile toTideman Johnson Park for a quick loop around the park on singletrack.Watch for people and pets on the Springwater Corridor.

Continuing west on the Springwater Corridor for another 0.5 mile, you come to the end of the developed portion of the trail. Backtrack east for the long ride to Gresham. Trail use varies tremendously depending on the weather, time of day, and proximity to intersections. The trail becomes more rural after crossing I-205. The connecting trail to Powell Butte Park is signed and the park offers more strenuous and challenging singletracks."

As the other reviewer said, an asphalt trail that's very busy with walkers, runners, strollers, dogs. Zero elevation change and - at the Johnson Creek section - multiple annoying stops at street junctions. Add 1 star for a road bike and add 2 if you get out early (before the crowds) on your road bike.

NOt much to say here. Asphalt trail that is good for those rides after a long weekend of killer hiking or long bike rides. You can just cruise through the east side at your own pace. To all the guys notice the little jumps next tot he market at I think it is 132nd street crossing. Cheers
