Located just minutes from Portland, this ride takes you on a tour of the rural landscape of Sauvie Island, which is filled with small farms, nurseries, and wild, open spaces. You’ll have the chance to see hawks soaring above open fields, bald eagles nesting, and migratory waterfowl from the wildlife-viewing areas on this route. In the summer months you also have the opportunity to stop and pick berries and try other locally grown produce at some of the local farms along the route. On a clear day you’ll also have gorgeous views of prominent Cascade volcanoes, including Mount Rainier, Mount St. Helens, Mount Adams, and Mount Hood.

Nice and easy trail. The only drawback is that there is litle to no shoulder most of the way and there is quite a bit of traffic in the summer, although motorists were very courteous.

Wonderful ride! very easy grade and beautiful the whole way, kinda reminds me of Napa valley. Not too much shoulder to ride on, but not there's not very many cars going by anyway. I really loved this one and will do it again for sure! -Lee
