SW ~ Hazeldale-Deline Corridors

Date visited: October 25, 2006
Agency: Tualatin Hills Parks & Recreation District
Path Surface: Paved
Elevation gain/loss: 60 feet
Distance: 2.7 miles
Ratings: Setting ++ Calorie-burning ++
Directions: From Hwy 217, take Highway 10 (Beaverton Hwy-Farmington Rd) westbound to SW 192nd, turn right to Prospect Pl., turn left to end at Hazeldale Park.

Two neighborhood corridors connected by quiet streets offer a pleasant walk, especially nice in spring and fall.

Begin at Hazeldale Park by following the paved path south to circle the ballfields and pass the off-leash area. Continue around the park to its northwest corner and veer left toward the trees. Enjoy the tree-lined path and twittering birds. Follow this path to and through Rosa Park to Rosa Rd. Turn left on Rosa Rd, left on 196th, then right to pick up Rosa Rd again. When you reach 198th, carefully cross to the other side where walking is easier and turn right one block to Walquin Ct. Follow it to 200th, turn right, then left on Deline St. Follow Deline for several blocks to a tennis court on the left. Turn onto the narrow concrete path beside the tennis court and follow it in a generally southeast direction, enjoying the trees and wooden bridges.

Continue on the path, crossing the streets, until you come to a left fork just before an area with playground equipment. Turn left off the main path into a cul-de-sac, Newcastle Pl. Continue forward to 203rd and turn left, turn right on Rosa Rd, left on 202nd, left on Wright, then right on 198th for one block. Turn left onto Oak, right on 196th and follow it until you can turn left back into Hazeldale Park. Cross the wooden bridge to return to the oval path and your start point. Map.
