The state’s newest scenic bikeway charts 50 miles of Willamette Valley splendor. Officially designated by Oregon Parks and Recreation Department this May, the ride links Hillsboro’s Rood Bridge Park to rustic Vernonia. In between, a cinematic landscape unfolds: low-traffic blacktop roads wind among oak-dotted horse pastures, fir-fringed hills, a pioneer cemetery, barns, and grain silos before joining the Banks-Vernonia State Trail, a 21-mile, car-free bikeway that bisects L. L. “Stub” Stewart State Park.
