In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.

Trailhead: Park at the end of NW First Street north of Portland Avenue.
Highlights: A wide, scenic trail along the Deschutes River and then above its canyon. Nice views of Mt. Jefferson to the north.
Note: Things are a little confusing near River’s Edge Golf Course, so keep your eyes peeled for blue signs that mark the trail running next to a canal.

Seasons: All (snowpack permitting)

Comments

  1. Nice and mellow for a near town ride. Good views of Mt. Jefferson is right!
