Hawthorne Bridge to Steel Bridge Professional Review and Guide
"This is an easy, pleasant (in nice weather) waterfront loop walk that includes two of Portland’s more noteworthy, character-defining civic projects, both of which exist mainly thanks to the progressive vision of city leaders who were intent on preserving the city’s reputation for pedestrian-friendly travel and that old magazine favorite, “livability.” Along with great views and fresh air, this walk provides some tangible examples of that often-vague concept, in the form of the Eastbank Esplanade and Waterfront Park. It’s also a great way to get a feel for Portland’s overall layout, the difference in character between the east side and the west side of the Willamette River, and the importance of bridges and the Willamette River in the city’s general atmosphere."
