Waud Bluff Trail is a go!

May 30, 2013

This morning, Portland Parks & Recreation was proud to announce the Grand Opening of the new Waud Bluff Trail in North Portland!

The new trail provides a vital link between Willamette Blvd and the proposed North Portland Greenway Trail. The trail will also greatly reduce the travel time for thousands of commuters from North Portland to Swan Island.

Waud Bluff Trail features 1,700 feet of improved paved roads, native plants, a retaining wall to better stabilize the steep bluff, and a new bridge for bicycles and pedestrians to safely cross over the Union Pacific railroad tracks.

Thank you to our partners, including Swan Island Transportation Management Association, UPS, U.S.Coast Guard, Adidas, and the University of Portland in supporting this valuable asset to Portland’s trails framework.
