The Vera Katz Eastbank Esplanade is 1.5 miles long, extending north from the Hawthorne Bridge, past the Morrison and Burnside Bridges, to the Steel Bridge with connections to eastside neighborhoods as well as across the river to Gov. Tom McCall Waterfront Park.
The main path up to Council Crest is long and uphill but paved. Paths at the top are paved as well. There are some unpaved sidetrails.
Paved paths lead from Cook Park, through wetland areas and over the Tualatin River to connect to Tualatin Community Park.
Much of this trail is not constructed yet, but when complete this important piece of the 40 Mile Loop trail system will provide an over 21 mile east-west link along the Columbia Slough -- connecting Blue Lake Regional Park in Gresham to Kelly Point Park in North Portland. The built segments of the trail pass by Delta Park between North Portland Road and Interstate 5 on the west end and also along the slough adjacent Airport Way on the east end.
The Clackamas River Trail was completed in 2004. The approximately one-mile trail runs through the Clackamette Cove area from the Main Street Extension to Washington Street, which connects to the footbridge to Gladstone.
A four-mile bicycle trail begins in the Riverside Day-use Area, winds through meadows and along the river bank and ends at the park's Historic Butteville Store (open seasonally). A one mile hiking trail loops off the bike trail between the Pioneer Mothers cabin and Oak Grove Day-use Area, passing the park's historic townsite.
This paved, shared-use trail offers excellent opportunities for walking, biking, jogging, commuting, and viewing the Burnt Bridge Creek Greenway.
