Metro and Kaiser Permanente’s new ¡Vámonos! maps highlight family-friendly routes to explore by foot and by bike in Cornelius, Forest Grove and Hillsboro.

The ¡Vámonos! maps answer that question as they cover a lot of ground: they show longer bike routes with big views, as well as scenic, short and safe walking routes that connect residents with schools, parks, grocery stores and more.

The maps also call out churches, interesting and old trees, historic points of interest, transit stops and safe crossings of busy streets.

Each town’s map outlines one main route with offshoot connections to other interesting sites. The main route in Forest Grove is 7.7 miles; in Cornelius it’s 5.5 miles and in Hillsboro, it’s 5.4 miles.

The maps are free and easy to use. Each one features information in English and Spanish, and suggestions for using the maps to get around town.

The routes have been tested by Metro’s walking experts for suitability and to ensure the safety of you and your family.
