The Springwater Corridor is the major southeast segment of the 40-Mile Loop which was inspired by the 1903 Olmsted plan of a parkway and boulevard loop to connect park sites. The rails-to-trails project’s paved surface, generally 10-12 feet wide with soft shoulders, is designed to accommodate walkers, joggers, hikers, bicycles, wheelchairs and equestrian users. There are ample opportunities to enjoy picnics and see wildlife at parks along the westernmost section of the trail — known as the Springwater on the Willamette — including the Eastbank Esplanade, Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge and Sellwood Riverfront Park.
