The Springwater Corridor Trail is a bicycle and pedestrian rail trail in the Portland metropolitan area. It follows a former railway line of the same name from Boring through Gresham to Portland, where it ends south of the Eastbank Esplanade. Most of the trail, about 21 miles (34 km) long, is paved. The trail is part of the Portland area's 40 Mile Loop trail system. It connects to many adjacent or nearby parks, including Tideman Johnson Natural Area, Powell Butte, and others.
Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge is a 141 acre city park in southeast Portland. Located along the east bank of the Willamette River near Sellwood, the park is known for attracting a wide variety of birds. In 1988, the park was named Portland's first wildlife refuge and in 2004, it was designated the city's first migratory bird park. The elongated park, which parallels the river, includes a large shallow lake on the east side of the Springwater Corridor Trail. The Corridor is a hiking and biking path that also runs parallel to the river between Sellwood and downtown Portland. Slightly south of the refuge are Sellwood Park and Sellwood Riverfront Park, and Oaks Amusement Park. West of the north part of the refuge are the East and Hardtack islands, perfect for kayaking and stand up paddleboarding.

We are empty nesters of three kids and have lived in Portland since 1995. I work in commercial real estate and my wife is in visual design and event planning. When in Portland, we love to hangout in the city, enjoy Portland restaurants and live music, bike on the waterfront, hike in the Gorge, and explore Mt. Hood or the Oregon Coast.
