This rails-to-trails multi-use path is fully paved with mostly gentle grades, except for one short, very steep section near milepost 12. After a lunch stop at Black Iron Grill in Vernonia we’ll back-track to Banks. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early – ride leaves promptly at the time listed. Note: Ride will be cancelled if there’s a significant chance of inclement weather – if there's any doubt please contact the ride leaders at the number below for an update.
