The Red Electric Trail is a proposed trail along the route of the old Red Electric tram line. UPDATE: Construction has begun on the pedestrian and bicycle bridge over the Fanno Creek headwaters in Hillsdale. It will connect the Hillsdale business area with “Little Bertha” and complete one more section of the Red Electric Trail. Completion date is spring of 2022.
