Joseph Branch Railriders
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.

If you like bikes and you like trains, you will love the Joseph Branch Railriders. Using unique, four-wheeled recumbent machines that fit on the train rails, riders pedal portions of the historic, 19th-century Joseph Branch rail line. The route passes through the scenic Wallowa Valley with views of the mountains, meadows and working family farms. Options include a 12-mile round-trip pedal from the town of Joseph to Enterprise or a 26-mile journey that travels from Minam to Wallowa and back again.
