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.
