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.

This generally quiet and pastoral loop takes you from Donald by the Heirloom Rose Garden and through St. Paul before looping back past Champoeg Park to Donald.

After starting in Donald, take Buttevile Road south for the first “loop,” circling back to Vergen Road via Olmstead. Then do the clockwise loop through St. Paul, along the Willamette and around to Champoeg. Lunch is available in Donald (until 2:00) or St. Paul. About 30 miles total.

Motorized Vehicle Traffic: Light to Moderate

Seasons: All

Comments

  1. This was a pleasant ride that we modified a bit to bike through Champoeg State Park (free entry for bicyclists), and continue on for lunch — and well-earned milkshakes — at the Butteville Store. Probably added only three miles or so, but the path through the park is nice.

  2. Nice ride but Yergen road is very busy with FAST cars and trucks. On the way back we just stayed on Champoeg Rd to Butteville Rd to Donald to avoid it.
    There’s a great food cart in St.Paul called The Burning Boar BBQ on the corner of St.Paul Hwy and Main. We stopped for lunch and had fantastic pulled pork and hamburgers. It’s well worth a stop.

  3. I highly recommend adding the loop through Champoeg, which strangely has better river views than Riverside Dr.

    I hope to get to the food cart in St. Paul next time: it looked good!
