Project Summary & Public Benefits

THPRD is very excited to be connecting Barrows Road in Tigard to the MAX Merlo Station stop in Beaverton. Once construction on this project is finished, it will connect to the newly completed two-mile segment beginning at Davies Road. The trail then weaves through the Tualatin Hills Nature Park, and then a short street route to the Merlo Station MAX Train in Beaverton. Once completed, this regional, commuter trail will span 5.5 to 6 miles, allowing for alternative, safe routes for many modes of transportation.

Segment No. 1 (Barrows Rd to Scholls Ferry Road) of the Westside Trail is a 0.39-mile-long trail that will begin at the Tigard city limits at Barrows Road, connecting the east/west Summercreek Community Trail, then continuing north toward Scholls Ferry Road. 

Along with the initial benefit of connecting multiple regional and community trails, this trail will also allow easy access for local patrons to the Murray-Scholls Town Center area.

Segment No. 4 (Galena Way to Rigert Road) of the Westside Trail will connect Galena Way to Rigert Road.  After completion, this segment will connect 3.32 miles of the Westside Trail.

Segment No. 7 (Mt. Williams-Burntwood Way to Davis Road) of the Westside Trail will connect Burntwood Way to Davis Road over the Mount Williams parcel.  This is a partnership project with the city of Beaverton and is a very challenging segment due to steep topography and existing natural resources (trees).


Westside Trail opened to the public in November 2013

THPRD is excited to announce that construction is now complete on the Westside Regional Trail and these vital connections are ready for the public to enjoy.   The long-awaited six miles of trail that connects the southern portion of the district to the Merlo Rd Max station in Beaverton provides a beautifully paved stretch of trail for the community to walk, bike and run.  These three completed sections will offer users alternate, safer routes for many modes of transportation while enjoying sweeping views of the surrounding landscape. 

You can view the approved master plan trail alignment in the "Document Center" on the right side of this page.
