Find directions using the Trimet Regional Trip Planner or Google Maps.

Located in southwest Gresham, also known as the East Buttes Regional Trail, this soft-surfaced trail along scenic Butler Creek connects Butler Creek Park to the Springwater Trail.

 

At the Springwater Trail, it is 1.5-miles east to downtown Gresham and 1.7-miles west to the City of Portland's 616-acre Powell Butte Nature Park.

 

The trail begins at Gresham's Butler Creek Park, 2385 SW 27th Drive and Mawcrest Avenue.

 

This hidden gem makes for an excellent two to three hour afternoon adventure - the dense woodlands provide lots of opportunities to spot birds and wildlife.
