I moved to downtown Portland about two years ago and one of the first things I looked into was what, if any, urban trail(s) existed. Since then I have been checking both urban and rural trails off my list (and the official Portland Trails map that can be picked up for just a few dollars) - walking some almost daily - and volunteering when possible. It's always a pleasure to see Portland Trails staff at events around town, and they're as receptive as can be when contacted via phone or email. They seem, no, they *are* genuinely happy to hear from the public... after all, they love the trails as much as we do!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Enjoyed the heck out of my hiking and biking.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a source of unlimited funding for them.

I love the woods, hiking, nature etc., but live and work in Portland, not in the remote area I dream of. I'm also 57 and can't always hike and climb the way I used to. But every single day I go out for an hour or two and walk on Portland Trails with my dog. I've seen turkey and deer, snakes and frogs (no bear, yet). There are waterfalls and wildflowers. I'm not sure, but I think you can walk to a trail from any place in the city. If I had a million dollars, I'd buy up every scrap of open land in Portland and give it to Portland Trails.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Mental health, spiritual health, physical health.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Put a mountain in Portland so I could climb it.
