Location

Vernonia Springs is an eco-friendly private park located at the base of the Northwest Oregon coast range halfway between Portland (35-45 minute drive) in the Willamette Valley and Cannon Beach on the Oregon coast (45-60 minute drive).

Banks-Vernonia State Trail

Banks-Vernonia State Trail is the first “rails-to-trails” linear state park built in Oregon. The trail follows an abandoned railroad bed that stretches 21 miles between the cities of Banks and Vernonia. Most of the route consists of an eight-foot-wide hiking and bicycle trail paralleled by a four-foot wide horse trail.

The gentle grade in all but one area allows hikers, bicyclists, equestrians, and people of all abilities to enjoy the scenic mountains, fields, and forests of Washington and Columbia counties.

Trail views include two 700-foot long, 80-foot high railroad trestles (Buxton and Horseshoe). The Buxton Trestle, which has a new deck and guardrail, is open to hikers and bicyclists. A ground-level equestrian bypass crosses Mendenhall Creek. The trail also has 13 bridges.
