Get ready to walk and ride public transit on this loop trail in downtown and southwest Portland. Take the MAX line (light rail) to the Oregon Zoo, walk on a trail to Marquam Nature Park and Oregon Health and Science University in the west hills, and then take the aerial tram, with its amazing views of the City of Portland, Willamette River, and Mt. Hood, down to the new south waterfront urban development along the river and ride the streetcar/tram back to the Oregon Convention Center.

Learn how citizen groups advocated for the trail and how they worked through obstacles with the city in order to complete the trail, including volunteers helping to build portions, saving the city money.
