Tualatin River Water Trail

Imagine paddling down 40 nautical miles of a peaceful, slow-moving river. Hear the sounds of birds greeting the passersby, while enjoying a cool trip through tree-lined waterways.

Here in the Tualatin Valley, it’s not just your imagination; it’s a reality. The Tualatin River Water Trail starts at the Willamette River at Willamette Park in West Linn, and travels through the Tualatin Valley’s farmlands and natural spaces to Rood Bridge Park in Hillsboro, the end of the Water Trail.

With 12 access points, and one due to open in 2016, you can make it a daylong voyage or a quick round-trip between two points.
