Cycling the Banks-Vernonia Trail, Oregon

May 18, 2017

Distance: Approximately 70 kilometers there and back (only completed 48km)

Duration: 3 hours 20 minutes

Time & Weather: Sunday, April 30th, 2017.  Partly sunny, 16 degrees Celsius

Watch the video here (some parts are grainy and I’m not sure why)

This was a bit of a challenging but gorgeous trail about 40 kilometers West of Portland.  I wasn’t aware of the steady incline from Banks to Vernonia, Oregon.  That, along with sleeping only 3.5 hours the night before, was killer.  I am intending to go back to this trail at some point before I head back overseas and complete the 68 kilometers there and back.elevation

Highly recommend for anyone into cycling living in the Portland area.  It’s a 32-40 kilometer drive on highway US 26 heading towards Astoria.  vernonia banks map
