Crown Zellerbach Trail Description

The Crown Zellerbach Trail, known locally as the CZ Trail, follows a former logging railroad through quiet and picturesque forests in northwest Oregon. Its east end begins at Multnomah Channel and, from there, the trail continues for 25 miles on a northwest course largely paralleling the Scappoose-Vernonia Road from Scappoose to Vernonia. (Note that the last 4.2 miles of the route are on-road.)

In Vernonia, the CZ Trail ends only about a quarter mile from the paved Banks-Vernonia State Trail, which offers another 22 miles of scenic riding through wooded and rural landscapes.

Parking and Trail Access

To begin at the Scappoose Trailhead: From Highway 30 northbound, turn left (west) onto Scappoose-Vernonia Road and follow the signs toward Vernonia. Continue on Scappoose-Vernonia Road for about 2 miles until you reach the trailhead and parking area at Sam Blehm Road. (Note that this trailhead is about 4 miles from the official east end of the trail at Chapman Landing.)
