The perfect biking, running and walking spot, all year long
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.

We’re committed to keeping our parks safe, clean, sustainable and welcoming – but we need your help.
Make a plan: Check for road closures on your route and research your destination for the possibility of fire bans, reservoir-swimming restrictions or other conditions that may affect your visit.
…and a plan B: Make a backup plan in case of crowds. If the parking lot is full when you arrive, come back another day. (Tip: try visiting on weekdays or at off-peak times to beat the crowd!)
Stop campfires from becoming wildfires! Keep campfires small, make sure your tent and anything that can burn is a safe distance from your fire, keep water nearby and never leave a fire unattended.
Keep it clear: Park only in designated areas. Do not double-park or block entrances.
Leave no trace: Help us protect these natural areas by staying on-trail, packing out your trash, and admiring wildlife from a distance.
