Wapato Access Greenway State Park, Sauvie Island
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.
This popular trail provides an additional hiking destination on Sauvie Island, especially during the winter months when access elsewhere is limited. In winter look for Downy Woodpecker, Northern Flicker, Bewick’s Wren and Black-capped Chickadee, with ducks and cormorants where the trail comes to the Multnomah Channel. The riparian deciduous woods host songbirds including Warbling Vireo, Orange-crowned Warbler, and Common Yellowthroat during spring migration, plus Black-headed Grosbeak and Swainson’s Thrush in late spring and summer.
