Portland Trails transforms Greater Portland into a healthier community for people-powered transportation, conservation, and recreation, by creating a network of trails and green spaces that connects people with places.
Since 1991, Portland Trails has built and maintained a network of over 70 miles of trails and green spaces throughout Greater Portland. The trail network reaches within a half mile of every resident of Portland. It spans four different communities, and over one million people use the trails each year. From someone’s morning jog, to a student’s safe walk to school, we are a part of people’s lives every day.
With over 1,300 members and countless more volunteers, corporate sponsors, community partners, landowners, and trail enthusiasts, we are able to transform Portland’s streets and the community for visitors and locals alike.
You use active transportation anytime you walk, bike, skateboard, or roll to get somewhere. We design our trail network to increase everyone's access to active transportation opportunities. Learn more here.
Healthier Neighborhoods for All is a program that aims to improve the health of Portland's neighborhoods, with a focus on low-income, BIPOC, and immigrant residents, by increasing awareness and usage of local trails and outdoor spaces. Learn more here.
