Explore the most popular road biking trails in Oregon with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Wide open area at the top with fabulous views of Helens, Hood and Cascade Range. Lots of forests around the base with smooth dirt trails. A very nice new entrance with parking lots, bathrooms, water fountains, benches, information and sculptures. Trails range from paved, to gravel to dirt. Horse trails too so watch out for piles! Busy on nice days but so many trails to chose from!

Amazing...pick a blue sky-day and enjoy the vulcanic history! Loved it

Well maintained trail with continuous elevation gain. Very muddy even on a nice day after the rainy season. Lots of roots on this trail so watch your feet! Views from the top are nothing but breathtaking. Everyone I met on the trail was extremely friendly as well which is always a plus.

Quick trip in the sunshine!! Always a go to spot if I’m in a hurry :-)

Probably the best in the city of beaverton. Tons of runners and foot traffic on the weekends, so be prepared to move over. Beautiful lake and water crossings. Enjoyable even in fall.

Easy hike between a creek and yhe road. Not much solitude to this one. would be a good spot for a trail run or someone new to mountain biking.

I did the south trail today!! It hailed, rained and snowed up there! I love it, easy hike if you're fit! Will totally do it in the spring again.

This 19th century urban park in Portland, Oregon is very popular. It features a peak with nice views and several reservoirs for the city’s water supply. Lots of people and dogs on well used trails.

easy walk. great for young kids and a nice walk.

Great trail in the middle of the metro area!

Great leisurely walk

Great park with a heritage/country feel and this path is accessible all-year long! Start at the Nature Center and wander down the hill, over the footbridge and west along the meadows to watch swifts and swallows feeding and nesting, and raptors keeping an eye on them. In the spring and fall, any planted fields are tilled by late 1800s era horse team - fun to watch. Follow the path west from the open fields into the forested Riverside Day Use area featuring French Prairie/Champoeg European settlement history. This area is beautiful in spring and peppered with wildflowers and chives. The path winds north into riparian forest along the Willamette and this area is full of owls, ospreys, turkey vultures, black-tail deer, and other critters. I have seen salmon popping their heads out of the river here. The trail switches east along the elevated bank of the Willamette which gives users an idea of the unbelievable amount of water needed to flood the area in 1894 and 1996. Follow the riverside trail around another Day Use area known for Disc Golf, and again into riparian forest where the footpath meets with the bike path. In the summer months, follow the bike path all the way to the Historic Butteville Store - they have ice cream! A long loop but a great place to busy your feet! Also, if you are a green thumb too, visit the 1860 Kitchen Garden, a heritage heirloom crop garden just outside the Nature Center.

meh. lots of dog poop on the ground, not many trees. crowded.

Great hike, not long with some challenge, we ended up adding the summit trail to make it more challenging.

Good day hike!

Beautiful scenery and amazing views of Mt. Hood and downtown Portland.

Easy paved trail, wheelchair accessible. Great for families and dogs

Smith Rock trails never disappoint.

Dry and no mud today. Some cool birds in the swamp.

Went on Feb. 3. Nice trails and will probably go back. This is a good loop with options to make it longer if you’d like. Though it can be difficult at many of the intersections to figure out which path to take. The trails don’t align with the map very well and there appears to be more trails than are shown on the map.

I walk my dog daily on this paved trail. Many beautiful parks to stop at. The trail is never too busy.

great little loop. only saw a few other people (nice weekday in February). a bit sloppy, so definitely bring some old towels for your dog

Transients abound...best for bike riding / quick getaways. My twin 7 year olds and I use sections for bike riding but not recommended for hiking or the faint of heart.

It gets very warm and the incline is demanding in hot weather. Take plenty of water

Easy walk. Great escape from the urban environment and so accessible!

Great hike. I would recommend doing this loop counter clockwise, knocking out the hard part first, then enjoying the views and relaxing the rest of the way. The part that follows the river, especially on the backside is so peaceful and relaxing. Lots of waterfowl to be seen. Will definitely be doing this hike more often.

Totally kicked my out of shape butt! Loved every minute of it! Very scenic and great inviting atmosphere!

Thought I would love it, but it’s chock-full of ups and downs, and not just the trails. You get kicked out onto a road at least a half-dozen times. The lake has many inlets which are lovely but also defy your expectations and progress. A number of sections of the trail needed repair, but plenty of signage. The scenery is beautiful and mutable. Not many other people, but the omnipresent road violates the stillness.
My rating might have been slightly higher if I had hiked rather than ran.
I might go back in the summer on a hot day, but would only do part of it.
Very muddy in January.
