Waterhouse Trail

Rolling paved hills following power lines

June, 2024 by davidc5

This is an easy paved path with both up hills and down hills, some straight stretches, some curvy parts as it follow some large power lines in a north-south swath through the neighborhoods. There's one section where you have to get off the trail and go about a quarter mile through traffic and a busy intersection to connect and continue the trail on the other side of Highway 26 (Sunset) so if you have small kids with you, consider only doing the north half or the south half. There are several street crossings and many parks and connecting trails to other destinations.

Riverfront Trail at The Dalles

Memorial Day 2024

May, 2024 by fwardsr

Awesome, tall native grasses and flowers everywhere ever great landscaping along the industrial section and of course the mighty Columbia river and abundant wild life.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

Falling into disrepair

March, 2024 by daywood

I love that this trail is here and I ride it often, but the section between Manning and Buxton is becoming unpleasant to ride because of neglected upkeep. As has been noted in other reviews, the bridge transitions are dangerous if you are unaware and hit them at speed (which is likely on the steep downhill run below Buxton). Also in that area, tree roots have pushed the asphalt into ridges big enough to unseat you or to bounce your chain off. Many of these are hard to see in shady areas. There’s a section just above the Manning trailhead where the asphalt has been torn up and heavily grooved for years. I recently met a rider in that area pushing his bike back to the Manning car park with a shredded road tire. I am sure money is tight. Although I want to see new trails built, I would not want it to result in neglecting to maintain this regional gem of a trail, particularly the heavily used lower half of it.


Banks-Vernonia State Trail

One of the Best Rides of Our Lives

March, 2024 by greggssystem

We moved from Bellevue (Omaha) Nebraska 3 years ago and we loved riding our bikes on the Papio Creek 20+ mile trail. However this ride is one for the “record books”. It’s got to be one of the most scenic rides in America and worth the one-hour drive from our home north of Vancouver Washington. This is a “must be there” ride!

Warrenton Waterfront Trail

much better than reviewers give it credit

March, 2024 by fgladics

Compared to trails that get all star rating, albeit a short 4 miles this trail is well maintained and has sufficient width to pass the two abreast walkers. Over half the trail is on a dike next to the Columbia River and its daily ship and commercial fishing boat traffic. Additionally there is a well maintained bathroom facility halfway between Warrenton and Hammond at a dog park. Before the dog park coming from Warrenton there is a very short section of on road riding, but the shoulder is 4 foot wide. The town of Warrenton/Hammind do a wonderful job of maintaining the trail One thing to be aware of is there are several elk herds that use the trail area and in the fall during elk rutting season you might need to detour our wait them out.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

Deferred maintenance only worsens from year to year. :-(

January, 2024 by tracey.heil

This really could be a spectacular trail.... :-(

Unfortunately, there is a section of trail between Banks and Buxton that goes through some hay fields that has been desperately overdue for repairs for years now. We ride the entirety of this trail every summer, so we are very familiar with the state of the trail from one year to the next. The transitions from trail to bridges are horribly jarring, and that one section I mentioned above has large sections of crumbling asphalt that can be downright dangerous for those of us riding road bikes with narrower tires. You simply cannot enjoy the ride through this section, as you're constantly trying to stay upright as you navigate the vast sections of potholes.

I have tried complaining to the staff at Stub Stewart, but no one seems to have answers when pressed for repair timelines. Worse, I've experienced them "passing the buck" by bemoaning the multi-jurisdictional nature of trail ownership and maintenance. At this point, they need to stop pointing fingers and just figure out how to make these desperately needed repairs to the trail!

Row River Trail

Scenic ride

October, 2023 by larry.ehl_tl

Very scenic and pleasant route. Benches in a number of places. Surface is good except for a few places with cracks that are bike-tire wide. They are marked with spray paint. Parking lots in town were a bit sketchy, I parked just outside of town at Row River Nature Park.
Wildwood Falls is about 1 1/2 miles past the trail's end. That's on a road; I encountered practically zero traffic, but in summer it could be a busier road.

Sun-Lava Trail

Great Out/Back

September, 2023 by wyrbender

Like previously mentioned, we started at the Sunriver trailhead. This put the steepest grade the last 2 miles up to Lava Butte. We also then rode the Benham Falls trail and some paths in Sunriver for a total of almost 20 miles. Despite other reviewers remarks and a sign at Sunriver trailhead we past several ebikers….all apparently originating from Sunriver (as we saw some of the later in Sunriver)

Lewis and Clark Commemorative Trail

Not for biking

September, 2023 by jennifer.fauley

I didn’t want to believe the reviews so we went anyway. Beautiful setting and views, but impossible for biking. While we struggled with the sandy surface I did see a mountain biker wiz past below us, but on an unmarked trail for sure. Would have been a fabulous ride.

Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail

two sections

September, 2023 by earls013

The ride from Hood river to Mosier is fabulous. The ride from Viento State park to Wyeth not as good because of proximity to I-84. Both feature impeccable road surface including 2019 constructed stretches of new road. But the Mosier leg is so special in terms of elevation and views Only 10 miles round trip there’s coffee in Mosier 1 mile past the end of the trail section. I’d you brave the surface streets you can make an60+ mile ride they say

Terwilliger Trail

Beautiful, green and lush

September, 2023 by allisonjinings

My husband and I just got here bikes and use this trail for our second expedition on them. It was such a beautiful ride. The trail was rather busy, but not a problem. There were picnic tables where we enjoyed a packed lunch at the park. Would do this again.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

maintenance is an embarrassment

August, 2023 by fgladics

It has been 6 years since I last ride the Banks to Stub Stewart State Park section. As before the transitions on and off bridges are abysmal. The bridges are 4 to 6 inches higher than the trail surface. Strongly advise riders slow way down when approaching bridges. Riding surface continues to deteriorate with longitudinal cracks wide enough to catch a 19 mm tire if not paying attention. Pavement is breaking up in places. That’s the bad. Maintenance appears to be painting white paint to highlight the more dangerous roots The good is the scenery once into the frosted parts is truly beautiful. And the sour face
