This ride looks promising based on the photos, but it’s pretty grim in reality. We went with or 6 and 8 year old and they struggled on the many big climbs. The trail crosses a few major roads and is a little daunting for little kids. Much of the trail looks into people’s backyards and/or power lines. And few homeless camps and trash now pepper they area near overpasses. Would not recommend if you’re going for anything other than exercise
What a terrific trail! We took our e-bikes out on their maiden voyage and, boy, was I glad to have the pedal assist! There are some steep hills, and depending on your fitness level or bike type, they may be a deal-breaker. But if you’re intrepid and game, it’s a beautiful, quiet trail with great views. Both Mount Hood and Mount Saint Helens were clearly visible today. We took MAX to the Merlo/158th stop and accessed there and made it all the way down to Scholls Ferry. I’d do this one again.
I started at the Banks trailhead and rode to Vernonia. Plenty of parking when I arrived, and not a ton of people on the trail. It was really beautiful, and pretty quiet almost the entire 22 miles there. There were a few sections that were a bit bumpy but just be aware of your surroundings and you should be fine. Almost every trailhead had a bathroom and bike station to use, and there were also great views!
Lots of garbage and campsites. Some sections are blocked with tents.
Neighborhood greenways are better.
We started at Bonnie Falls trailhead and headed up towards Vernonia. The signage was not very clear and we ended up an a logging road for an extra 4 miles. We should have gone under the bridge at about 14 miles. Instead we went on to the logging road. Good views of Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Adams but on the wrong road. So we backtracked after talking to some people. The trail was quite muddy in spots (mid-March). Most of the trail was packed dirt and gravel. It is paved from Scapoose to Ruley TH. Then it's trees, river, meadows. Very quiet and pleasant.
I ride this almost daily in the summer , I really like having this trail so close to where I live. The only issues is you really need to pay attention the first time you ride it or you may get lost like I did. And since COVID-19 the homeless have really took over this area.
The hills are steep but the scenery makes up for that. Peaceful, rolling vistas. A beautiful challenge that feels like a back country trek. I wouldn't try to bike it unless you are super fit. Some of the hills after Nora St will kick your butt just walking them..
Best access point is parking at Columbia Boulevard Water Treatment plaint and following the path and bridge across the slough. A little industrial in parts, but beautiful views of the slough and lots of birds (great blue herons, great egrets, hawks, sandpipers, etc.) and other animals (river otters, nutria, etc.). You'll have the trail mostly to yourself. I'd recommend going during the week to avoid going on a day where the raceway is up and running. Great hidden gem.
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.
We took our seven-year-old son and nine-year-old daughter on this trail recently. There are several places where you have to cross roads, but our kids are comfortable with this type of riding, so it felt safe. It's really nice that you can stop at parks along the way for a break. We had a great time.
My husband and I just discovered this trail today. What a gem! Love the random artwork and the peaceful trail!
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.
