Cascading Rivers Scenic Bikeway

The Cascading Rivers Scenic Bikeway is currently in its recommended phase; pending official designation from the State’s Scenic Bikeway Committee. Once designated, the Cascading Rivers Scenic Bikeway will follow the Clackamas and Breitenbush Rivers along 72-miles of road from Estacada to Detroit. See map here.

On Feb 25, 2014, 28 community members joined Travel Oregon and Oregon Parks and Recreation for the Bicycle Tourism Studio for the Cascading Rivers Scenic Bikeway. Participants learned about how:

  • Your region can leverage the Oregon Scenic Bikeway designation to increase visitation
  • Your business can capitalize on this growing travel segment
  • A large percentage of visitors to Oregon are coming to ride their bike
  • Bike travel is a rapidly increasing segment of travel in North America

Bicycle Tourism Studio Notes:

The Cascading Rivers Scenic Bikeway proponent group is currently in the final stages of their Bikeway Management Plan. If you have information or questions about the plan, please contact Alex Philips, OPRD’s Bicycle Recreation Coordinator by email or phone (503) 986-0631.

Travel Oregon has designed a series of Bicycle Tourism Studios and workshops for the Oregon Scenic Bikeways and destinations seeking assistance in developing more bicycle tourism. These Studios are intended to help make our Scenic Bikeways the best places to ride in North America, to elevate surrounding areas as bicycle travel-friendly destinations, and to help local businesses benefit from visiting cyclists. The program is crafted to further planning efforts for each Scenic Bikeway, educate people about the growing cycling tourism market, foster key connections between local players and regional, state and national organizations, and focus community energy on the development of necessary infrastructure, business services and marketing activities.
