The Tualatin River Greenway Trail is a paved, wide bicycle and walking path that meanders through trees, near the river and past wetlands. This new section of trail includes a walk through time—exploring the transition of the Ice Age and cataclysmic Ice Age Floods, extinction of Ice Age mammals and emergence of Paleo-Indians and early settlers in the Tualatin and Willamette valleys.
Along the trail you will find interesting features about Tualatin’s natural and cultural history, including erratic boulders, cast fossils and information interpreting the Ice Age, volcanoes, and uses of the land over time.
This 3/4 mile segment of the Tualatin River Greenway Trail starts at Barngrover Way next to the Tualatin Public Library along the Tualatin River, under I-5 to the former RV of Portland site on Nyberg Lane. The trail currently connects to Brown's Ferry Park through the Nyberg Woods shopping center, onto Nyberg Street and Nyberg Lane.
Both the Nyberg Woods shopping center and the Tualatin Public Library have been approved by the City of Tualatin for use when connecting to the trail. There is a bus stop alongside the library on SW Martinazzi Ave. Good wayfinding signage leads to the trailhead. There are also plenty of places to stop for lunch before or after your trip. Use the Tualatin Library address (18878 SW Martinazzi Ave, Tualatin, OR 97062) to find your way to the location.
Other benefits and places of interest are found in the library and in the adjoining mall. Cabela’s Sporting Goods has a large display in the back of the store on dinosaurs. The library also has various relics from dinosaurs and the Ice Age. Both are free and open to the public. If you have more time, you can also take in the "art walk" through the city. There is plenty to do and see along this trail. You may find yourself coming back here again and again to take it all in.
