Enjoy the Ride Along the Cascading Rivers Scenic Bikeway

Couple Walking Bikes

Biking is second nature to Pacific North-Westerners and not just as an alternative way to get around, but also as a way 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 want to try something new with the family, The Cascading Rivers Scenic Bikeway is the perfect route to experience.

Enjoy biking events? Take part in one of the Cascading Rivers Rides taking place between August 17 and September 29 near Estacada. Varying degrees of difficulty, length, views and a family-friendly ride to choose from. Check it out here.

Tip: Remember 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 go drive on the route so always keep your ears and eyes aware of your surroundings.
