Portland Trails

About Us

Portland Trails transforms Greater Portland into a healthier community for people-powered transportation, conservation and recreation by creating and maintaining a network of trails and green spaces that connect people with places.

Now 32 years old, Portland Trails is a non-profit urban land trust that serves the 230,000+ residents of Greater Portland and many of the area’s 4 million annual visitors. The 75+ mile trail network, which is within a 10 minute walk of every residence, provides free nature-based recreation and transportation options for adults and children. Guided by our foundational belief that trails are tools for change, Portland Trails is focusing on reducing social barriers so that all of our neighbors feel welcome and safe on the trails. While our trails physically reach within 1/4 mile of every resident in Portland, not everyone feels welcome, safe, and comfortable in these public spaces. Trails not only provide an important connection to nature, but serve as a vital link in a more equitable transportation network, connect neighbors and neighborhoods, improve economic development, enhance ecological and human health, and create a more vibrant community.
