If Oregon has a heartland, it’s Clackamas County—home to wealthy suburbs, downtrodden logging towns, bygone villages, iconic scenery, and relentless growth. It was the end of the Oregon Trail, a beacon to those who trekked the continent in search of good farmland, a second chance, or simple escape from whatever Midwestern village trapped them. Now it offers would-be country squires their five acres of heaven at a reasonable price. This tour takes in the Clackamas countryside via back roads. It has a few long hills and several stretches of busy traffic, but for the most part it’s mellow and manageable for intermediate riders. Begin at Abernethy Creek Park in Oregon City, just north of the old downtown.
