New link in Westside Trail opens this week

Posted by on April 29th, 2009 at 1:50 pm

The Tualitin Hills Parks and Recreation District has announced the completion of a new, 2-mile segment of their Westside Trail.

Here’s more from their website:

The new trail marks an important link in THPRD’s efforts to establish a continuous north-south trail backbone through its district. Combined with other existing segments and additional trail projects to be funded by the district’s 2008 bond measure, the backbone will eventually stretch 10 miles from PCC’s Rock Creek Campus to Barrows Road.

The trail is now open for public use and a grand opening to celebrate the new trail segment will be held on Saturday May 9th at the Tualatin Hills Nature Park (15655 SW Millikan Way, Beaverton).

More details on that event at the THPRD website.

    I’m not clear which portion of the trail in the above graphic is newly built? Can you please clarify? Is it one of the numbered solid red segments? Not sure if any of those are 2 miles long…

    Hi Scott,
    the new part of the trail runs south from the Nature Park to the base of Mt. Williams near Oak St. On the map, it is one of the dotted line segments.
