A good route I discovered for myself in "Oakridge, Oregon" trail map. Minimal elevation, some smallish waterfalls on the way, woods and lake on the left visible and audible all the way. If 12.8 mi point-and-back is too much, one can turn back any time. There is a charmingly abandoned park with two picnic tables in the middle of the trail. I score it 4 stars just because it can feel a bit monotonous.
Although bank and shore mean essentially the same, the official name for this trail is "shore". E.g. https://www.mtbproject.com/trail/7012148
