In the vicinity of the Cedar Hills Crossing (formerly known as Beaverton Mall) lie several seldom-explored neighborhoods. We offer two walks starting at the West Hills Racquet and Fitness Club, 2200 SW Cedar Hills Blvd, Portland 97225, so that you can visit these hidden parks and pathways. Water and restrooms are available at the start. Many shops and restaurants are nearby.
The start box for these walks is just past the sign-in desk, in the short hallway on the left.
ROXBURY PARK WALK: 10K (6.2 miles) Rated 1+ ... Will take you through quiet neighborhoods and along Roxbury Park enroute to the unique wallhouse architecture style homes, then back along more neighborhood streets. This urban walk passes many opportunities for dining and restroom breaks. Strollers and wheelchairs OK.
HIDDEN PATHWAYS OF BEAVERTON: 10K, rated 1+ ... This walk will take you along some busy streets at first, but then you’ll plunge onto quiet pathways that wind through Beaverton parks and neighborhoods. You’ll never find these pathways from your car - you’ll find them only on foot. You’ll walk through old downtown Beaverton and the quaint restaurants and shops there. Wheelchairs and strollers OK if they can cross railroad tracks. Qualifies for the Walk Oregon Challenge: Park Trails, and Namesakes.
