  • Round-trip travel: 8 miles

We will drive to Boring and park at the Boring trailhead, where parking and restrooms are available.

Bring water and snacks for the trail. Since the walk is all on paved sections of the Springwater Trail, wear shoes that are comfortable for walking on asphalt. Umbrellas may be necessary, depending upon the weather, since the trail has no tree canopy.
