McLoughlin-Canemah Trail Plan

Permanent Trail Alignment

The McLoughlin to Canemah Trail (MCT) is a planned shared-use path that will link the Canemah Bluff Natural Area to the McLoughlin Promenade. The trail will be approximately one mile in length and will pass through a mix of intense urban uses, quiet neighborhoods, and serene natural spaces. The trail will use existing streets and paths when available, filling in gaps with new trails and improving overall safety for people walking and biking. With the help of Metro's Nature In Neighborhoods grant program, the City completed a plan for this trail in 2018, which is part of the City's adopted Trails Master Plan and the proposed Oregon City Loop Trail.

A community advisory group provided input and guidance on the trail alignment and design and will continue to oversee implementation.

Greenway for a Day

As part of the planning process, the City hosted Greenway for a Day on July 29, 2017, to "open" the trail for users and gather input on trail design. View the Greenway for a Day Summary and Results (PDF) to learn more information.
