The number of Oregon Scenic Bikeways has grown to 14 with two exciting new additions for the summer of ’15: the Wild Rivers Coast Scenic Bikeway and the Cascade Siskiyou Scenic Bikeway.

The 60-mile Wild Rivers Coast Scenic Bikeway begins in the quaint fishing town of Port Orford. It follows the federally designated Wild and Scenic Elk River to Cape Blanco State Park, where you’ll find the oldest working lighthouse in the state. Enjoy rugged and rocky south-coast ocean vistas and pedal through spectacular old-growth forest.

Or, climb steep and winding roads along oak-dotted mountainsides on the 55-mile Cascade Siskiyou Scenic Bikeway. This route starts in culture-rich Ashland, famous for theater, fantastic dining and proximity to many outdoor recreation opportunities. It incorporates 5,000 feet of climbing through oak savannah and the ecologically diverse ecosystem of the Cascade Mountains.

About the Scenic Bikeways program
Oregon’s Scenic Bikeways program designates riding routes nominated by local proponent groups, and makes it easier for locals and visitors to experience the state’s best riding with route signs, detailed maps and turn-by-turn cue sheets. It’s the first program in the nation of its type.
