  • Excellent paved trail on an old rail line so it has gradual grade that even a fair weather biker like me can handle. Passes through farm land and forest. Going over an old rail road trestle is a high ...  more »
  • A perfect way to finish our bike tour. The trail is paved, safe, and absolutely gorgeous. Highly recommend to anyone biking in the area.  more »
  • You can go as far or as little distance as you feel up to. Most of the trail is shady. It's a gradual climb and barely noticeable. Well kept. Good for walking, running or bike.  more »

  • Beautiful place in Coastal Oregon. Great selection and knowledgeable staff. Very friendly. Even to Californians! Ha ha
  • Such a great bike trail can't wait to do the full thing
  • We loved this trail! Not many walkers/hikers to dodge the day we went and the other bikers were very savvy about "rules of the road". Parking is dicey on a busy Saturday at Banks lot and we felt really lucky to get one of the only spots available. We have been biking for only a few years using bad starter bikes and it was no problem getting up the gradual 7ish mile uphill climb . Was awesome coasting back down. We went on a near 100* day and it was pretty cool still in the trees and forested areas. We ran into free ranging pigs on the trail but no trouble getting around them. Love this trail!
  • Great trail 21 miles end to end 42 mile round trip. Also several trailheads in between so you can choose how long a ride. Very nice trail, paved all the way.
  • Beautiful trail, gentle incline for 10K training.
