Trail 7 going from Fairmount to Dosch -- IT'S NOT THERE AS SHOWN.
On both Urban trails map on back and on main map (where it's shown as light
stripe). This is where we avoid showing the route as going
down the water-meter trail. Isn't it better to show a gap in the
The main trail, the Marquam Gulch Trail, in Marquam Nature Park is not
shown at all. Sunnyside Trail and Goldie Corridor Trail are shown.
Placements of switchbacks is, in general, wrong. Crossing of Marquam
Hill Rd by the lower branch of 40-mile trail is incorrectly shown.
It does not simply cross the street but runs along it for about 400 ft.

Main Trail (center east-west trail) in Gabriel Park is not shown.
Tryon State Park trails are very incomplete. Auto entrance, parking
lot area, and Nature House need to be shown.

Mysterious streets in crook of Sherwood.

In general, all streets should probably be named. (I've heard
several complaints on this issue.)
Wyndham does not go through to Skyline (just south of Hoyt Arboretum).

[Check what appears to be an extension of Humphrey Park south of Humphrey
near Hilltop Ln. I think this is a private drive.
Why is there a dotted purple line show at the sidewalk on the south
side of Council Crest Drive from the circle to the park boundary?

The Veterans Adm Hospital parking lots are formally connected with stairs,
paved walks and gravel trails. Probably should show a lot of these connections.
They are well-used.
The street and pedestrian connections and continuity at the east approaches
to Ross Island Bridge are unclear.
That grid of streets labeled "River Sq" between Montgomery River Pky
are, I believe, private paths and access to parking structures. They
are gated and locked?
What is the street to the east of Council Crest Dr just north of the
red/white transmission tower (Healy Heights)?
There must be some way to indicate that the gap in Council Crest Dr
south of Carl Pl is not a gap in drivability or walking access.
There's no right-angle wiggle in 21st north of Dewitt and south of Kanan.
Bertha west of 33rd has a sign, "Private No Trespassing." It's the Pascuzzi
property which Pascuzzi is contending vis-a-vis the Red Electric route.
36th does not extend north of Iowa at Iowa (Checked,
G-8 Flower Street does extend all the way to Cullen (west
of 42nd). It's a bit primitive for autos, but perfectly good walking.

At the north end of the pedestrian bridge over I-5 below the Barbur
Transit Center, the main pedestrian route to the parking area parallels
I-5 to the west and is up a gentle concrete ramp. (We've never taken
the stairs shown as the route and have never seen anyone else use them
|The main E-W trail in Dickenson Park
isn't shown--it goes to Alfred. The "trail" shown is a hazardous,
overgrown clearing with lots of hidden potholes--a real ankle-twister.
The planned trail up from Custer to 4th (shown in grey) is located under
the N-bound on-ramp. It does not cross 4th and 5th as shown.
The cemetery road approaching Sellwood Bridge is pretty far off.
The road goes north of the west end of Sellwood Br and then hairpin turns
south to the traffic light. There is a wide set of stone stairs from
the hairpin turn that goes down to the street near the end of the bridge.
The Summerville streets and path south of Carey are pretty far off:
too much street at the south end; too little at the north.
There are a lot more trails in the Quail Post development. North end
of Quail Post Rd is still wrong.
At Vacuna and 37th, there is street to the west. The path is in
the middle of the block.
The street that goes under the underpass north and east of Handy Andy's
is missing. (Capitol Hwy at Multnomah Blvd). So are the stairs down
from the bridge. The bridge should have black lines outlining the
bridge to show the third dimension configuration here. What is show
is very confusing and fails to give necessary information.
?[Check Hume at 42th/43rd.]
Lobelia does not extend from 5th eastward to Taylors Ferry Rd.
New trails have been located and marked in the Dickenson Woods parts
of Dickenson Park.
A well-established and well used trail goes through the north part of
Dickenson Park from 57th to Alfred Ct.
Check north side of PCC Slyvania Campus: entry at 53rd? There
are other paths, too, but less formal, 51st/Vesta, e.g.
Most of the Catlin Crest development is gated and locked. The map should
somehow convey this fact.
Good News! The west end of Raab Rd has just been reopened to walkers
and bikes to Canyon Dr.
The position of Raleigh Hills School makes it look like the access to
the schools is on Hazelnut Ln. It's on Scholls Ferry Rd.
There are no stairs (or any other pedestrian route) from the east end
of Pine Ridge Ct to 73rd. (IS THERE??)
Trail missing at northeast corner of Hideaway Park. It goes to
Hickman Ln--not named on map: is there really a piece of 67th here?
Aloma Way and what appears to be an extension of Canby is still wrong:
these do not connect in any way. Aloma Way goes to the Frank Estate
development around "Firlock Way" and nowhere else (as far as I know).
There is a high quality path that connects the athletic building for OES
to the OES campus, and this path can be reached from Frank Estate by a
couple of ways (across a back yard of an apartment and over a wier on the
stream) but this path has a gate that is often closed and locked.
The gates that were put in to connect the path to Arranmore development
have all be closed and locked.
The paved path north out of Garden Home Park to Skyhar is missing--and
so is the water fountain near the tennis courts. (We rely on this
water a lot.)
Monshadow Park trails all missing
74th--Barbara to Landau has roads and a trail (with bridge). It
just doesn't connect by auto.
Spruce St west of 77th has good pedestrian connections all the way to

probably be shown. A map of them is available (was $1) at the recreation
center on Jefferson.
Consider showing Jefferson Pky under the print at the bottom left corner
of the map. It's the main route up to Kerr Pky from below.
H-16 There is a wide concrete pathway extending north from
31st Ct to the edge of the newer housing development property. It
currently becomes a demand path into the older housing to the north.
It was apparently mandated by the permitting system. A school
route over these paths would be especially desirable to avoid what is currently
a hazardous route. (The Safe Routes to Schools program is greatly
concerned about the unsafe routes in and out of Stephenson School and especially
around the intersection of Stephenson St and 35th.)
J-12 Freeway ramps in freeway color (grey) would better
depict their use, especially vis-a-vis pedestrian use.

Don't think so. 51st, 52nd, 53rd and each has a piece of Brugger

to the next numbered street. There is no Brugger street between 54th

points to the general problem that we need to designate areas of school
grounds and parks across which we may go just about anywhere.
