Trail Closures

Please see Portland Parks & Recreation's Inclement Weather Policy for additional closure information during extreme weather.

Columbia Slough Trail
Work on a lagoon reconstruction project located at the Columbia Blvd Wastewater Treatment Plant will take place November 2011-2018. During construction, the Columbia Slough Trail will be intermittently closed. Trail users can detour to Columbia Boulevard south of the plant and the trail segment east of the plant. For more information, please visit the BES Lagoon Reconstruction and Trail Closure Alert.

Foley-Balmer Natural Area
The bridge across Tryon Creek, on the trail connecting SW Lancaster Rd and SW Collins Ct, has been closed for user safety due to structural stability concerns. The suggested detour is to use surface streets, such as SW Broadleaf Drive, to connect SW Lancaster Rd and SW 18th Pl. While the bridge is closed, the natural area is still accessible.

Forest Park - Maple Trail
Maple Trail in Forest Park remains closed between Koenig Trail and Firelane 4.

Marquam Nature Park - Sunnyside Trail (posted 12/15/2015)
Please use caution in the area. Heavy rains have impacted trail stability.

Powers Marine Park
The access road from Hwy 43 (Macadam Ave) to the former Staff Jennings boat store and the park will be closed permanently for the construction of the Sellwood Bridge. The trail within the park will not be accessible during construction and is planned to reopen in November 2017. Pedestrian and bicycle access along Hwy 43 will remain open, though there will be posted detours throughout the anticipated 4-year construction. For more information, please visit

Washington Park
The short trail connecting Wildwood Trail and SW Fairview Blvd near the Portland Japanese Garden will be closed October 24 through late November 2016.
