The 3.5-mile Peninsula Crossing Trail crosses the North Portland peninsula between the Willamette and Columbia rivers. The pedestrian and bike path connects urban neighborhoods to workplaces, schools and regionally significant natural areas (Willamette Cove on the south and Smith and Bybee Wetlands Natural Area on the north).

The Peninsula Crossing Trail is a collaborative effort between the residents of North Portland, Metro, the 40-Mile Loop Land Trust, the city of Portland and the Oregon Department of Transportation.

Funding for construction of the Peninsula Crossing Trail came from Metro's open spaces, parks and streams bond measure (approved by voters in May 1995) and the U.S. Department of Transportation. Additional funding was provided by Portland's Bureau of Environmental Services.

Accessing the trail

There are trailheads at North Princeton Street and Carey Boulevard near the south end of the trail and at North Columbia Court off Columbia Boulevard. It is also easy to access the trail at its junctions with Lombard Street, Columbia Boulevard and the 40-Mile Loop along North Marine Drive.

The trail is managed by Portland Parks and Recreation. For more information, call 503-823-7529 or visit their website.
