Oregon’s Willamette Valley and Wine Country get lots of attention, but the Tualatin Valley is a great destination – a lush, scenic place to ride that’s only a few miles from Portland. This Bikeway shines a spotlight on the bounty of the valley.
Ride the Tualatin Valley Scenic Bikeway and you’ll enjoy scenic views of the Coast Range, dairy farms, vineyards and natural areas, while you inhale the earthy aroma of fresh-cut hay and listen for the flutter of waterfowl. The prominent natural feature here is the Tualatin River and its surrounding river basin, which is dotted with wetlands and forest stands. Farm-produce stands, farmers’ markets and a winery offer a wonderful seasonal mix of activities, giving you the opportunity to partake in the area’s agricultural bounty – and then pedal off the calories!
