Champoeg State Park

Champoeg State Park Professional Review and Guide

"The paved bike path here makes a good drizzly day destination. The park provides a controlled setting for teaching children the rules of the road and the importance of riding safely. The bike path rolls through woodlands and old pastures, then it follows the Willamette River to connect with the Butteville General Store.

There is one significant hill to climb near the east end of the park. The path ends after 3.2 miles; the last stretch into Butteville is on paved roads. The park is approximately 30 miles south of downtown Portland; about 30 miles north of Salem."

A really great park for a little bike ride, fun and safe for kids. We followed the bike path all the way to the Historic Butteville Store and got my nieces some ice cream. Lovely views of lush forest and the Willamette River. A very fun day!

Fun ride for families, and good for new bikers. There is an out-and-back paved trail that is fairly flat without many pedestrians nor bikers (at least not on the Sunday we biked), making this a good choice for families and children getting comfortable with riding. Recommend planning your ride so that your half-way point is at the Butteville General Store, where you can have ice cream, lunch etc in pleasant surroundings before heading back. (no unpaved trail riding here, by the way)
