WalkingPDX is all about walking to your favorite Portland destinations.
But we recognize that people of all ages and levels of mobility visit Portland, so we also offer public transportation alternatives. There is always a bus, Max Train, or Portland Streetcar nearby. Be sure to download the TriMet App to locate the near public transit stop and the time of arrival. The free App is available for Android (Google Play Store) and IOS (Apple’s App Store).
Ranking Our Walks
Rather than give each walk a rating, we can say all our walks are “easy;” most along city walkways are wheelchair accessible.
Although we haven’t tracked the exact distance of each walk, they all are between 1-2 miles roundtrip. Sound a little short?
One reason the mileage is short is that Portland city blocks are only 200 feet long, compared with 500-foot-long blocks (like New York and other cities).
Here are some facts provided by PBOT (Portland Bureau of Transportation):
