This study follows a recent engineering study by PSU students, which offers a potential trail alignment in the Sullivan’s Gulch. Metro Parks and Greenspaces asked for a product that would identify whether and how the trail would meet regional goals if constructed as an off‐street path. This report is intended to research and explain the planning issues that follow from the potential trail alignment. This report provides information to support a decision on whether to apply for funding for further planning and engineering study. It also serves as a practical resource for future action. This project was conducted under the supervision of Deborah Howe, Barry Messer, and Ethan Seltzer.
