Banks-Vernonia Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The nonprofit Rails-to-Trails Conservancy has the enviable task of converting former rail lines into trails. The first conservancy project in Oregon, the 8-foot-wide, 21-mile
Banks–Vernonia Trail extends from the town of Banks, in Washington County, to the that of Vernonia in the Coast Range.

The multiuse trail is open to bicyclists, walkers, and runners and is paralleled by a 4-foot-wide horse path. The ride cuts through canopied second- growth forest and open meadows and visits a pair of 80-foot-high railroad trestles. There are six separate trailheads spread out along the length of the
trail. All the trailheads can be reached by car, and most provide restrooms, picnic tables, and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) access."
