Faraday Road is a private road that parallels the Clackamas River. The road is owned by Portland General Electric, the utility company that operates the hydro power plant on the river. Only authorized motorized vehicles are allowed, but PGE has generously opened the route so cyclists, walkers, and runners can enjoy this lovely stretch along the river. The Clackamas River Cruise takes you along Faraday Road for a no-traffic, flat, relaxing ride. This is a perfect journey for new riders of all ages, but more experienced cyclists will appreciate the ride for the beauty and serenity. There is a boat launch at one end of the ride, and a fishing and picnic area at the other end. The nearby town of Estacada is a gateway to plenty of other recreational opportunities.
