Just about anything you find on TravelOregon.com can be added to your own personal Trip Planner. Find out how.
A relatively flat, enjoyable ride along the shore of Dorena Lake. Riders can take a break at Culp Creek (the turnaround point on the east end of the lake) and make the quick journey to Wildwood Falls for a swim. There are also several covered bridges along this route, making for a unique riding experience.
There are lots of great places to stop and enjoy the view of the lake, as well as several scenic covered bridges along the route. And most of all, access to a bike path while logging miles is great!
Note: This bike route is part of the proposed Southern Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway, along with the Hamm Road Loop, Wolf Creek Loop and Northern Leg routes on this site.
