Banks Vernonia Trail
The Banks–Vernonia Rail Trail is 21 miles of paved trail between the two Oregon towns of, what else, Banks and Vernonia. Old railroad trestles, wildflowers and wildlife add to the charm of this nature-lover's trail. The trail is steep in places so cyclists are asked to walk their bikes or slow way down for your own safety and that of other trail users. The trail climbs from Banks toward Vernonia, passing through the Hilltop Day Use Area. The trail has 13 bridges and two 700-foot long, 80-foot high railroad trestles offering amazing views. The route follows an abandoned railroad corridor, which was used between the 1920s and 1957 to haul timber.
Springwater Corridor Bike Path
The 21.5-mile Springwater Corridor extends from SE 4th Avenue at SE Ivon Street in Portland (near the Willamette River) to the town of Boring. The trail winds along the banks of the Willamette River in downtown Portland to the rural exurbs, connecting a diversity of neighborhoods, natural areas and industrial sites. The trail passes through or near several parks and refuges, including Powell Butte, Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge, Tideman Johnson Nature Park, Beggers-Tick Wildlife Refuge and Leach Botanical Garden. Watch for red-tailed hawks, great blue herons and eagles overhead or resting in trees and in wetlands.
