Cycle by fields of Oregon’s world-famous hop farms, past views of vineyards and quaint towns. Stop for winery tastings and pick up supplies at coffee shops and brew pubs. 
The valley’s temperate climate encourages year-round biking. Bring rain gear for winter riding. April through November brings sunshine, amazing flower displays, farmers markets full of hazelnuts, strawberries and Marionberries (a fruit unique to the area). 
Champoeg State Park marks the bikeway's northern point, where settlers gathered to hold what turned out to be a very narrow vote leading to the creation of the State of Oregon.
Camp at the hiker/biker sites in Champoeg State Park and Willamette Mission State Park, or leave your carat Champoeg (must check in with Visitor Center and pay fee) while riding the 132-mile bikeway. Or, just head to Willamette Mission State Park and back for a day trip.
The route passes through Oregon’s capital city of Salem and the Ankeny Wildlife Refuge. The wintering Canada geese honks and calls are the loudest noises heard on this stretch. 

Continuing south, cycle through the picture perfect town of Brownsville. A campground is conveniently located near downtown. 
The bikeway is mostly flat, with one climb just south of Jefferson to the top of Scravel Hill, where you rest and take in the view of the valley or explore a pioneer cemetery. The largest climb is the pass south of Brownsville. The climb gains 600 feet. The route continues through the quaint town of Coburg before it reaches its southern end at Armitage County Park and campground.
