One of the many reasons I love living in Portland is because there are so many great trails that I can access so easily from my house. I discovered (or was shown) the Stroudwater River Trail back in high school when it was a particularly bad snow year but the river was frozen and there was a thin layer of snow on top of the river. You know what that means? Yup. Time to skate ski on the river. The trail is relatively flat and winds along the river through the woods. It’s my favorite trail for a nice easy run. With the beautiful fall colors now is the perfect time to get out and enjoy it! Here is the information from Portland Trails on how to access the trail.
