As you may be aware there are exciting new bicycle projects underway in the Columbia River Gorge, and more on the drawing boards. In 2013 almost two miles of paved trail was opened in the I-84 corridor completing the connection between Troutdale and Cascade Locks, and providing a much safer and more comfortable route for cyclists and pedestrians
More projects are in the works, including a new trail segment between Wyeth (Exit 51 on I-84) and Starvation Creek State Park (Exit 56 on I-84). Future projects will include completion of the trail between Viento State Park and Hood River, allowing complete passage through the Gorge without ever having to ride or walk on the I-84 shoulder. This last segment will include a tunnel, parking and other amenities and will have similar appeal to the Hatfield Trail east of Hood River. These trails and improvements also provide more parking and access for Gorge area mountain biking trails.
Travel Oregon and the Friends of the Historic Columbia River Highway are supporting research to analyze the benefits of these bicycle enhancements.
