Fanno Creek Trail: Our Path to Connection

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Fanno Creek Trail is a regional trail that extends from Tualatin to Portland, passing through Tigard, Beaverton and unincorporated Washington County. The vision dates back to 1975: a 15-mile walking and biking trail from the Willamette River in Southwest Portland to Fanno Creek's confluence with the Tualatin River in Tualatin.


Completion of the Fanno Creek Trail in Tigard is a top priority. The trail is being developed in segments, with current work on the projects below.

    Bonita Road to the Tualatin River is known as the “missing link,” as it is the final gap in the Fanno Creek Trail in Tigard. This project will determine the vicinity of the route in this area and provide a conceptual design and future grant materials for final design and construction. The project will consider items like street and railroad crossings, amenities such as seating and overlooks, and access points to view the creek.

    This project will fill four key gaps on the Fanno Creek Trail:
    • Woodard Park to Grant Avenue
    • Ash Avenue to Hall Boulevard(Reconstruction)
    • Tigard Public Library to Bonita Road (Milton Court)
    • 85th Avenue to the Tualatin River

    The existing on-street routes in this area follow busy high-speed roads like Bonita Road, Hall Boulevard, Pacific Highway (99W), and Greenburg Road, resulting in safety concerns. The future trail is proposed to gently wind through a beautiful oak savanna, provide meadow views and build new bridges over Fanno Creek to support this off-street regional trail.

    While the Fanno Creek Trail is being developed in segments, a cohesive look and feel for the trail in Tigard is desired. Community input for this project shows habitat enhancement, wayfinding and signage, and restrooms are priorities along the trail. This project will ultimately recommend priority projects for construction.

    04 Nov 2019

    In response to an increase in the frequency of flooding of the Fanno Creek Trail at Scholls Ferry Road, Tigard has partnered with several agencies to complete a conceptual design and an alternatives analysis of where the trail could cross Scholls Ferry Road at-grade. The alternatives will be compared for feasibility, impact, and cost. Study results will include a preferred alternative and lead to a future grant application for final design and construction.

    Funding: $75,000 split between Tigard, Washington County, Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District, Beaverton and Clean Water Services

  • Fanno Creek Overlook

    This project will straighten the Fanno Creek Trail through downtown, eliminating the need for the “over and back” route over Fanno Creek, while creating a resting space along the trail that looks out over the creek itself. Adjacent to the existing brewpub, the Fanno Creek Overlook project will restore degraded stream-banks, improve the regional trail experience and create a small gathering area as one of several mini-plazas along Main Street.

    Funding: $1.2m City Center Tax Increment Financing (TIF) funds
