Livermore Road

Stay Safe

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.

The southern part of this rural gravel road has brush lines and pastures that support wrens, sparrows and warblers, with numerous wetlands that harbor ducks, geese, and swans, especially in winter. The northern end is open grass fields. In winter look for accipiters, Northern Harrier, Rough-legged Hawk, White-tailed Kite, and Northern Shrike. 1.7 mi N of Smithfield Rd, an open area reliably hosts Western Meadowlark, Streaked Horned Lark, and wintering American Pipit. Also watch for Prairie Falcon, Burrowing Owl, and Short-eared Owl at dusk. Marshes along the S half of the road have nesting Yellow-headed Blackbird. For a very pleasant birding experience in good weather, park at the Morgan Lake access for BSNWR, and walk or bike along the southernmost mile or two. The wetland restorations on both sides of the road are mainly private but can be viewed from the road. Whether you bird on foot, by bicycle, or car, keep to the side of the road while viewing so that farm traffic can pass.

Follow directions for Morgan Lake access, Baskett Slough NWR (Site Y1). Park here to walk S part of road, or bird your way N for 4.2 mi N to intersection with Bethel Rd just E of the small community of Perrydale. For a loop from N end of Livermore Rd back through Baskett Slough NWR: Go E on Bethel Rd 1.9 mi to Hwy 99W, then S 6 mi to Coville Rd.
