Description The 40-Mile Loop Land Trust was incorporated in 1981 with the purpose of assisting in the acquisition of lands along with conservation and recreation easements along the 40-Mile Loop corridor.The 40-Mile Loop was originally proposed in 1904 by the Olmsted Brothers (Frederick Law, Jr. and John Charles, sons of Frederick Law Olmstead) who were brought to Portland from Boston to propose a park system as part of the planning for the Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition and World's Fair.Now, a century later the 40-Mile Loop is nearly complete. The trail connects parks along the Columbia, Sandy, and Willamette Rivers and Johnson Creek in an almost continuous loop. There is something somewhere along the route for everyone,whether it is hiking or biking, whether you're in a stroller or a wheel chair,whether you are skating or boarding or even horse-back riding or canoeing.The loop includes accessible trails and nature trails along forest hillsides and overlooking wetlands and wildlife.
