Banks-Vernonia State Trail

My expectation were too high for this trail possibly

September, 2020 by moscowsharon

I didn't like how one direction was mostly uphill and the other direction was mostly downhill. I like a little more variety of up and down in each direction. And although it was pretty, I'm I don't understand why this trail is so popular.

Trolley Trail (OR)

lovey!

August, 2020 by zxipex

My husband and I just discovered this trail today. What a gem! Love the random artwork and the peaceful trail!

Frenchman's Bar Trail

NOT a great walking trail

August, 2020 by chuffine

The first portion of it, starting near Vancouver Lake, is pretty, although there is very little shade. However, once it gets to the end of the Isthmus, at Blurock Landing, it parallels the road. It's really no more than a more protected bike lane that is right beside 501. I walked for a while and then turned around, very disappointed. I'm surprised at the high ratings folks gave it. 5 stars, really? Also cell phone coverage is spotty (at least for my phone) so be aware. For bikers or skaters it may be fine, but NOT recommended for walkers unless you find walking beside a sometimes busy two lane road as your idea of being out in nature.

Lovely trail but very busy for a Wednesday. App helps see where you are as many twists and turns.

This trail is good for commuting.

Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail

Cascade Locks to Stairs

June, 2020 by pcraze

This is a pleasant forested section, but it’s only about 2.5 miles one way from the parking in Cascade Locks to a very steep set of stairs that impedes access to the rest of the trail. If you had two people you could transport each bike up the stairs to continue the ride. I didn’t have anyone to help me and my bike is very heavy so I turned around. A note about parking: Park under the bridge in Cascade Locks, but don’t take the steep downhill road that leads you down to the railroad tracks. If you do turn around and go back to the parking lot. The trail start almost on the shoulder of the highway and then veers off into a peaceful wooded area

Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail

Mosier to Hood River Best Segment

June, 2020 by pcraze

The trail and parking was open as of June 1, 2020 during Phase 2 of the Covid-19 situation. We rented bikes at Discover Bicycles in Hood River to ride the Historic Hwy bike path. We had a bike rack with us and we were staying in Mosier so we road the section from Mosier to Hood River (5 miles one way). This is an outstanding ride! Riding from Mosier to Hood River The trail is either uphill or level. Enjoy a picnic lunch and restrooms (flush toilets) and water at the Hood River parking lot. Riding to Mosier the trail is mostly downhill or level. Currently this is the best section of the trail to ride.

Rock Creek Trail (OR)

great trail

May, 2020 by madriago

Great with 3 kids all on bikes - one a tricycle

Crown Zellerbach Trail

Unimproved along sections, and some muddy spots. But gorgeous. Everything the Banks Vernonia LT used to be before it was paved and became a bicycle race track.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

A great trail for walking or riding. Lots of families. Beautiful scenery. Watch out for high speed bike riders who fail to yield right of way to others.
