Wondering why “Ice Age” is part of the Tonquin Trail’s new name? Learn how glacial floods shaped the trail’s landscape and see the blueprint for the 22-mile pedestrian path.
Looking for a safe way to bike from Forest Park to the Tualatin River? Check out the proposed route for the 25-mile Westside Trail, which will someday connect communities between the Willamette and Tualatin rivers while passing through some of region’s most amazing scenic areas.
The region’s growing trail system offers something for everyone, whether you want to get to work, connect with nature or stay in shape.
More than 35 local partners will be at the fair ready to share information about these projects and more. Check out the list of organizations and projects listed below. This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
