After the completion of a 1.6 mile segment, you can now bike 34 miles from Troutdale to Cascade Locks. The Seattle Times offers a list of what the new 1.6 mile segment has to offer.
  • A new 12-foot wide paved path accessible to pedestrians, bicyclists, hikers and people using wheelchairs.
  • A distinctive new 76-foot long, 16-foot wide bridge over McCord Creek reflecting the craftsmanship of the original highway design. 
  • A new picnic and rest area with restored views of Beacon Rock. 
  • A link with U.S. Forest Service Trail 400, connecting to Elowah Falls.
