SW Trails worked with the City of Portland Parks Department to build this beautiful section of trail connecting Hillsdale and Multnomah Village, called the Raz-Baack Crossing. It is part of the Hillsdale to Lake Oswego Trail, and serves as a key safe route to school. The government entities said it was a $900,000 project that could possibly be funded within ten years. But SW Trails, which supports biking and walking in SW Portland, designed and built this trail themselves. With fund-raising help from the Raz family, SW Trails volunteers completed the project in six weeks for less than $10,000. For additional information on trails in SW Portland, go here.
