Winding through the heart of Washington County’s vineyard country, this tour route beckons you to enjoy the agricultural and viticultural bounties of the Tualatin Valley, among bucolic rural scenery.
Nature & Produce Abound
Embarking from the city of Sherwood, the Vineyard & Valley Tour Route passes alongside the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge, an oasis of wetland and upland habitats within the city’s urban boundary, which is home to nearly 200 species of birds, 50 species of mammals and several endangered species of fish. You’ll soon begin passing a number of farm stands offering fresh produce; depending on the time of year, offerings include blueberries, apples, peaches, plums, hazelnuts, walnuts, raspberries, strawberries and marionberries. Many farm stands let you pick your own—it’s a great way to stretch your legs and immediately reap the rewards of your efforts!
Sparkling Silver Falls
Silver Falls State Park is the largest in the Oregon State Park system, featuring a campground, conference center, and hiking, mountain biking and horse trails. Best known for its waterfalls, it attracts more than 750,000 visitors each year. The Trail of Ten Falls (Canyon Trail) winds past ten waterfalls in Silver Creek Canyon and joins the Canyon Rim Trail to complete a seven mile loop. Originally constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), the trail runs behind several of the taller falls and along the brinks of others, providing an exhilarating excursion for hikers of all ages and abilities. If you don’t have time for a long hike, take the ¼ mile trail to Upper North Falls. The historic South Falls Lodge, constructed by the CCC in 1941, is also worth a visit.
On to Sublimity
From Silver Falls State Park, descend past vineyards and Christmas tree farms on Oregon Route 214, turning right onto Cascade Highway to Sublimity, a town that’s as peaceful as its name. (Don’t miss the Stayton-Jordan Covered Bridge at Pioneer Park, the newest covered bridge in Oregon.) In Sublimity, enjoy a walking tour of the historic downtown, featuring 19th and early 20th century buildings, two of the oldest man-made waterways in the state, and interesting antique and specialty shops. From here, the byway heads west toward the town of Turner, where you can access I-5.
