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.

Step back in time to the 1850's and experience the trials and tribulations of Jacksonville's founding families by touring the Historic Jacksonville Cemetery. Established in 1859, it is the final resting place for some 4,000 area citizens.
Tours highlighting different aspects of the cemetery are offered at 10 am on the 2nd Saturdays from May – September. There are also guided evening strolls on the 2nd Tuesday evenings at 6:30 pm, May – September.
The Friends of the Jacksonville Cemetery provides tours during the summer and produces "Meet the Pioneers" every other October. This event highlights the personal histories of the town and the residents buried there.
