PGE Parks and COVID-19
The safety of park visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners is very important to us. To ensure their safety, we have temporarily closed the 14 parks and recreation areas we operate.
We are following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), state and local public health authorities and our recreation partners when responding to the COVID-19 outbreak.

ALERT: The lake, park and surrounding areas is closed for construction as of April 1, 2019. Parking near the bridge and access to all areas across the bridge (SE of the Clackamas River) is closed.
The area will reopen spring 2021. Learn more about the new Faraday Powerhouse.
Walk, bike, run, repeat
Faraday Road is a popular spot to access Oregon’s Cascading River’s Scenic Bikeway, a 70-mile route from Estacada to Detroit Lake. For a family-friendly ride, a rambling road run or a quiet walk with your dog, park at our Old Clackamas Highway trailhead and enjoy four miles of paved roadway.
For access to the Old Clackamas Highway Trail, follow Faraday Road to its end at the trailhead.
