Molalla River State Park
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.
This large park at the confluence of the Molalla and Willamette Rivers offers access to meadows, ponds, and mixed forests of cedar, Douglas fir, and maple. Watch and listen for Western Meadowlark in winter, migrant warblers in spring, and waterfowl on the ponds and rivers. A heron nesting colony is active in spring.
From Hwy 99E in central Canby, turn N on Holly St (also called Canby Ferry Rd) and go 1.8 mi to the park entrance on the L. The Canby Ferry connects from the park to West Linn on the N side of the Willamette River (closed on holidays and during high water).
