Discovery Trail

Awesome though the dunes but watch out going to Ilwaco

September, 2016 by 2r7h5f0

Beautiful morning ride. We started at 26th N. The farthest point north. The hotel there provides complimentary parking. Spectacular baby rollercoaster ride for 6.35 miles to Beard's Hollow. Got a little confusing there because the trail was gravel and steep after the bridge. We went back and found the trail to the lighthouse. Very Nice. Got directions from the park volunteer. We went back to the road, turned right up the hill and found the asphalt trail to Ilwaco. It was wet and slippery from fallen leaves. Control your decent carefully! My wife fell hard on the wooden bridge just before the end near Ilwaco. The bridge has "SLIPPERY WHEN WET" sign. IT IS!!! We walked the bridge on the way back. The next day we rode the dunes section again because it's absolutely gorgeous and not crowded on Monday.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

Great place to ride, run, walk

September, 2016 by hal.brockman

I have used this trail extensively the past 5 years in preparation for Ironman 70.3. Great training course and easy transition area for bike to run. Having a place like this with ready access and no vehicle traffic is a wonderful resource for this area.

Discovery Trail

To and from Ilwaco

July, 2016 by gphillips1234

This is a great forested section of trail that is beautiful and fun! As noted in other posts, it includes some ups and downs, and it is definitely worth checking out. during the summer, consider combining your walk/hike with a visit to the Saturday farmer's market at the Ilwaco waterfront, where the trailhead is located.

Do not go all the way to Ilwaco

July, 2016 by cmcook42

When the Trail turns to Ilwaco it is not paved and very steep, up and down and up and down. The rest of free trail was beautiful and fun.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

Beautiful Ride

June, 2016 by daleydoubl

Our time was limited so we rode from Vernonia to Stubbs-Stewart State Park and then back to Vernonia for a total of 23.3 miles. This trail is good for flat out hauling or a casual ride through the woods.
There is about a 3% grade to the park so the ride coming back seemed much faster. The trail was clean from any liter and kept extremely nice. Beautiful ride through the trees. On a hot day this would keep you shaded and cooler. If you need "fuel" don't forget your energy bar or what ever. You can get nuts and bars at the Visitor Center at the park. There are restroom facilities along the way so no worries there. It was a most pleasant ride and we are looking forward to seeing the other half of the trail on another day this summer. After the ride we ate at the Black Iron Grill in Vernonia. Good food and a nice relaxing lawn to rest our weary bones!

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

Grew up riding this trail

June, 2016 by kolbylynn45

It's great for a weekend stroll with the family, very beautiful.

For someone who is looking for a more serious ride I would say this is probably not the trail for you. As lovely the Vernonia trail is, it's geared more towards families I feel.

It has road crossings which i'm sure most do but its a very stop and go kind of ride. Lots of families, dogs, horses, other bicycles. Again, very stop and go.

If you go during the week it may not be so bad but on the weekends its pretty crowded.

Again its a very beautiful ride and great for the family.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

First ride of the year

February, 2016 by roostermags

Wow, this is a super awesome trail. I met a friend there for our first ride of the year. This ride was easily worth the 7 hour drive and 934 mile round trip to get there. Nice paved, spectacular scenery and 69 degrees for Mid Winter, we hit the perfect weekend for our kind of perfect trail. We rode the full trail and started in Banks and rode to Vernonia. This trail has what we like, all kinds of riding types, flat in places and incline in others and one steep spot where the trestle was lost in some distant fire. The steep grade is very short and with the switchbacks can be walked in a few minutes. If you are thinking of riding this trail, I would highly suggest it. Super nice trail and I can’t wait to ride in the Summer for a follow up ride. Nice job on this marvelous spectacular trail. LOVED it. Rooster

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

Easy, long, great for anybody

January, 2016 by ramontrane

Biking (racing, road, mountain in LL Stub Stewart State Park, and touring, hiking, skating, board skating, riding horses, camping, cabins, fly fishing (Nehalem River). Good cafes and beer in Vernonia. Good cafes and beer in Banks). What else can you expect in a trail. mmm I forgot, rural, woods, birds, elk, deer (and more elusive, pumas and bobcats).
Try it, enjoy it and then go crazy in Portland (or first go crazy and then do the trail).

Astoria Riverwalk

River walk trail

January, 2016 by trask

We enjoy this path as local residents.... While there are some short sections along the cannery area that remain planks.. It is still a very fun and welcomed route for all abilities to utilize.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

Great Trail, but watch for Dogs near Banks

January, 2016 by patrick2035

I ride this trail regularly in the summer and fall. The trail is basically half climb and half descent. A gradual climb from Banks until your reach mid-point in Stubbs Park and then a nice long downslope to Vernonia. And vice versa if riding from Stubbs to Banks.

It is easy to pick up speed descending the trail from Stubbs to either Banks or Vernonia (and is quite a bit of fun). However, there are two significant dangers: Dogs and Children. On the weekend, there are many families on the trail with kids behaving as kids - not really paying attention and leaving bikes parked in the middle of the trail.

The second significant danger sent me to the urgent care last year. There are many farms from the Banks area until you reach the trestle and approach Stubbs Park. The farmers allow their dogs to run free in the area and the dogs are frequently on the trail. During my descent into Banks, I t-boned a large dog that came through the bushes on the side of the trail and ran immediately in front of me. Without any time to stop, I hit the dog and flew twenty feet. Would have been much worse without my helmet.

Anyway, great trail, but be aware that you are in a farming area and not a controlled metro setting.

Astoria Riverwalk

Nice for walking NOT for bikes

October, 2015 by divehammerheads

I had been really looking forward to riding my bike along this trail, hadn't walked it so I had no idea what was in store for me... but it did say you could ride a bike on it so how bad could it be. I was towing my dog in a trailer and it started out fine, some paved and some areas you had to cross the rr tracks and had to ride on the boards between. Then there were areas that you could only travel between the tracks and that was the problem. The gaps in the boards going the same direction as the tires were so wide that even with a mountain bike you would fall in! They stuck 2x4's in some holes but not all. First the trailer fell into a hole and then my front tire, throwing me off and to the ground. Swollen wrist and bruised hip! My husbands tire also went into a large crack but just feel straight and got stuck. Needless to say we never made it to the end. If they want this to be a bike trail then they best do something with the boards or have between the tracks only walking and outer areas widened so that a bike can safely travel.
