Boring is an unincorporated community in Clackamas County, Oregon, United States. It is located along Oregon Route 212 in the foothills of the Cascade mountain range, approximately 12mi southeast of Portland. The town, which is contemporarily a bedroom community, is named after William Harrison Boring, a Union soldier and pioneer whose family first settled the area in 1856 in the Oregon Territory.Boring was officially platted in 1903 after the Portland Railway, Light and Power Company constructed an electric rail line to the town. The former railway is now part of the Springwater Corridor, a rail trail which begins in Boring and ends at the Eastbank Esplanade along the Willamette River in southeast Portland. The Boring Lava Field, an extinct volcanic field zone that comprises terrain spanning between Boring and downtown Portland, took its namesake from the town.Plan your trip to Boring and other United States destinations using our handy United States journey builder app.
