Marine Drive Bike Path
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.

This bike route on the shore of the Columbia River is a great ride for families or people who don’t enjoy cycling in traffic. It consists of a dedicated and separated bike path from the start point on 33rd Avenue to the I-205 bridge; you can extend the route to another nice section of bike path right along the water by riding a short segment of Marine Drive east of the 205 underpass.
On a nice day, you’ll ride among a mix of walkers, riders and even the occasional in-line skater. You’ll see sailboats on the river, dogs running on the beach and various wildlife if your eyes are sharp. The route is essentially flat.
The map here uses the actual Marine Drive (the mapping software doesn’t recognize bike paths yet), but the bike path is easy to find and follow.
Motorized Vehicle Traffic: None on bike path; moderate to heavy on Marine Drive (good shoulder, though)
