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
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.
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
Wonderful wildflowers, yummy blackberries to snack on, beautiful views and lots of smiling others (dog walkers, individuals riding their bicycles, joggers and morning leisure walker!). It's been extended from 8 miles to 11 at this point in time
The first part - Vancouver Avenue to Interstate Avenue was fine, new macadam. The part from Interstate Avenue to Portland Road was needs repaving, with gravel between patches of macadam in bad shape. Given that your on top of a narrow lever, it was bit dicey.
Really great connecting trail to get you from the Trolley Trail to the Milwaukie Max stop, high school, food cart pod and east downtown access to main street and the library. Great public art and view of the rail bridge. Peep down in the river for a spooky surprise on a scooter!
You take the trail all the way into the forest by the lake. Then take asphalt for 1/2 mile and back into the woods. The view changes into open air and fields on the way to Frenchmen’s Bar. This trail has it all with asphalt, gravel and in-between. Liked it so much, I did it twice. On my e-bike, it was a blast. I will be back often.
We have electric bikes and we did almost the whole trail. It’s a little challenging in spots. The trail is mostly packed gravel and some pavement. One section somewhere close to the end someone’ put loose gravel on a huge hill and that was not fun. All and all we will be doing this trail again! Oh we seen a deer on the trail too.
Awesome ride! Will be back.
maybe they’ve done a better job at restoring this, but these review seems so exaggerative to me. I went on a Friday afternoon and they were barely any people and maybe 1 to 2 homeless people that I saw on the trail. Although i only did half, it was beautiful. A little confusing at first but I got the hang of it. Theres some hills you can go on near the middle of the trail on the sides but they aren’t very stable.
Really nice trail that connects three parks. Decent enough tree cover on some to keep rain at bay.
Went through the Meadows Park area and there were a number of homeless camps. One man had his face covered carrying a gun that was pacing the trail. We got past them, husband went back to check on an elderly couple we passed to be sure they came out ok and they did but we took the streets back to our car. Very scary and disappointing that so much beauty has been lost. This was around 1 in the afternoon today.
