I-205 Multi-Use Path

Use it or lose it!

September, 2022 by dave194

This trail and it's construction is nothing short of amazing. Yet the pictures on the Rails to Trails website tell it all. It is not being used. Maybe it is because people are afraid of the homeless encampments that you see or because it is next to a freeway. But the homeless encampments would be much less of a problem if there were more people on bikes utilizing the trail. This trail I am sure cost millions yet just a few people use it. Get out there people!

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

Indian Summer

September, 2022 by bbbthere

Stayed at cabins at mid trail…cabins are small and clean…showers/bathrooms close… though went at mid-day, the trees make the trail eerily dark, headed to Veronia first (~12 miles). Short distance to hilltop (switchbacks and short), then pretty flat. In Veronia, loop around lake. After back to mid-point from Veronia, all downhill, then flat. Huge open field is highlight here. Tressle was goal and cool, but overrated. From Banks (the return way) chunk is all uphill. At trailhead (downhill and fast from cabins), you then must make it back up to cabins which is ~half mile and pretty steep.. drained my battery…battery drained just short of coasting down into cabins. downhill into cabins.

Large numbers of homeless people live along this trail. The amount of used needles, human feces, and trash is incredible. It is not safe, and definitely not a family-friendly environment.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

Fun and Beautiful

August, 2022 by ednprod

I read a lot of the reviews and some said the road was not paved well, pot holes etc…overall I felt the road was fine. All issues are clearly marked so you are aware of them. People are all respectful of others on the trail. We liked it so much we are doing it again tomorrow. It is fun, beautiful and we appreciated all the spots to stop along the way.

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

Dire Need of Resurfacing

August, 2022 by vidmar

I rode the trail from Banks to Vernonia (21 miles one way) and back with some extra explorations for a total of 49 miles on a Trek Dual Sport. The trail is a beautiful trail migrating through the woods. It does have a long 7-mile uphill that starts about 5 miles into the ride, but it is not a serious grade. That said, my lady will tell you that it is uphill for a long time. There is one very serious switchback trek that is about a 10 percent grade. It can be done, and it is fairly short. Overall, getting to Vernonia was a good ride, but anticlimactic once I arrived. The best part of this ride is going through the woods. However, where I would probably give the ride a 4/5 rating, the condition of the path destroys much of the beauty. If you are not paying attention, you just might go down. The condition is dangerous especially on the 7-mile downhill. Why? Because a large portion of the path was done with chip seal. If you do not know what it is, see: https://www.bicycling.com/rides/a21074245/why-chip-seal-is-absolute-worst-surface-for-road-riding/

Beyond the horrible chip seal surface is the degradation of sections that have morphed into craters and potholes. If that is not bad enough, every bridge is between 2" and 6" higher that the path surface. If you do not brace yourself, good luck.

Bottom line, I am sad that the trail is listed as a must and one of the best in Oregon, but it does not warrant that billing in the present day condition.

We live just a few blocks from this trail in Monmouth. The community uses the trail especially in the early morning & evening in the summers for jogging & cycling. It’s wide, flat & traffic-free (even tho it runs along the Highway). There is a convenient bike repair station along the trail in front of the Monmouth Police Station. Just across the highway via a well-marked crosswalk is Gentle Woods Park (named after the Gentle family) with shade, grassy fields, a small playground & footbridge across the middle fork of Ash Creek.

Westside Trail

Not super beautiful

Basically i went on the part of the trail near Beaverton/Nike area. Very well maintained but not very continuous. Not a lot of awesome views, lots of elevation change.

The trail segment is accessed from Battle Ground Lake state park. It is very short, less than a mile but with the state park nearby you could easily lengthen it. The trail itself is in excellent condition and especially if you have mobility issues, a nice little walk. It is mostly a shaded area and filled with wildflowers on both sides.

Frenchman's Bar Trail

Good for a short 8 mile skate

The parks each have the smoothest asphalt I’ve experienced so far. Vancouver lake has some roots pushing the asphalt up, but it’s fun as an irregular pump track. The trail connecting is less smooth and without shade. The whole thing is pretty flat, with the best hills dead ending at the beaches.

Padden Parkway Trail

Good for skating, views are eh

Very smooth trail with fun hills. Most of the view is of padden parkway, so that part is whatever, but it a good workout. The way back has views of hills. The bridge going over 205 seems unnecessarily tall, but I'm no civil engineer.
