Marquam Nature Park Trails

PROJECT OVERVIEW
Designed and constructed a number of soft surface hiking trail segments, including low and high bridges of varying lengths and wayfinding signage - as called for in the 2003 Marquam Hill Plan and using the preliminary alignments determined by public process in 2007. Using PP&R's 2009 Trail Design Guidelines, the new trails were designed to responsibly expand hiking options within the park while preserving the habitat and other environmental values and functions. The project provided key pedestrian connections between the surrounding neighborhoods, OHSU, and the Terwilliger Parkway and eliminated a network of unsafe demand trails that damage habitat and water quality. Funding was provided by a Local Share of Metro's 2002 Greenspaces Bond Measure.
