    Salmonberry corridor updates?

    I don't live in the Portland area anymore, but if I did, I'd love to ride this trail to the coast!

    What's the latest on this? Will she be built? I've read a few property owners have griped, but many more have not. Would it be similar to the Banks/Vernonia Trail? (although I'd imagine much more scenic)

    There was recently a blurb on Bike Portland about this, but I haven't heard much else.

    And I agree, it does sound pretty good. Any idea if it will be paved or gravel?
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    I believe the plan is to pave most of it, but I hear that part of it will be a little to rugged to keep paved.

    I'd prefer gravel, but one of the big claims for this trail is that it will get the roadies off of the highway. If it becomes anything like the Banks Vernonia Bike Path, I will probably skip it. I'd honestly rather see the railroad be restored, but that's just me.
