Canco Woods is a small but important green-space amidst a densely developed neighborhood. This and other urban forests provide crucial habitat and travel corridors for birds and animals, absorb and filter stormwater, and provide an opportunity for people to access nature within City limits. The trails in Canco Woods were built and preserved through partnerships between area neighbors and businesses, Friends of Canco Woods, the Trust for Public Land and Portland Trails; the land is owned by the City of Portland. Visit www.friendsofcancowoods.org for more information about these efforts.
The trail can be accessed from Canco Rd and the Woods at Canco, or trailheads at the end of Frye, Rosedale or Torrey Streets.This trail is sponsored by Adopt-A-Trail partner: Avangrid/CMP
