Enjoy the Ride Along the Cascading Rivers Scenic Bikeway

Couple Walking Bikes

Biking is second nature to Pacific Northwesterners, and not just as an alternative way to get around, but also as a means to see things from a different perspective.

Soak up the majestic scenery of the Cascading Rivers Scenic Bikeway, which parallels the nationally designated Wild and Scenic Clackamas River. This 70-mile remote roadway from Estacada to Detroit follows the course of the river, and the views are ever changing and soul nourishing. 

Beyond the views are an abundance of activities to pull over and enjoy, from fishing to swimming to exploring among the trees. Set up camp to soak it in a little longer or head to the nearby towns and grab a craft beer and bite to eat to celebrate the experience. 

Whether you are an avid biker, a recreational cyclist or just want to try something new with the family, the Cascading Rivers Scenic Bikeway is the perfect route to experience.

Enjoy biking events? Participate in one of the Cascading Rivers Rides taking place between in August and September near Estacada with varying degrees of difficulty (even a family-friendly ride), length and views. Check it out here.

Tip: Remember to bring extra water, layers and a map and always ride with a friend if possible. And while its mostly low vehicle traffic volume, there are motorists that drive on the route, so always keep your ears and eyes aware of your surroundings.
