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.

This lollipop route includes some hefty climbing (only 1,000 feet but very steep at points). Not recommended for beginners — more for intermediate to advanced riders. The hill on Orchard Heights is nothing to scoff at. However, you are rewarded with not only great views and bird watching; you can hit six wineries: Cubanismo, Kath Ken Vineyards, Orchard Heights Winery, Whistling Dog, Van Duzer and Cherry Hill Wineries. (Check with individual wineries for open hours.)
There is an outhouse at the Basket Slough parking lot.
