The small community of Vernonia and its surrounding area attract tourists from near and far. The Banks-Vernonia State Trail is truly exceptional and must be ridden by anyone traveling to the area.
If guests haven’t ridden the Banks-Vernonia State Trail before, they can add this to the bucket list! The BV Trail, as it is called, is truly one of the best “rails to trails” bike trails in the U.S. The trail dissects the Vernonia Springs property so access is several hundred feet from the main gate. The hosts rent awesome Trek hybrid comfort cruiser bikes that will make the ride through the rainforest a breeze!
A perfect ride is to head north on the trail six miles into downtown Vernonia. The total round trip distance is 12-14 miles. If guests want more of a challenge they can head south on the trail towards Stub Stewart State Park, which is four miles up the bike trail and 15 miles to the trailhead at the city of Banks. Stub Stewart State Park has an awesome frisbee golf course, as well as a stellar mountain biking trail complex for all skill levels.
Besides the Banks-Vernonia Trail, the property also has miles of nature trails for guests to enjoy. Beaver Creek runs through the property and is home to rainbow trout and spawning salmon in the fall. It is an amazing site to see these large fish in six inches of water!
The City of Vernonia has a good market, a gas station, a hardware store, several bars, restaurants, and a golf course. There is also a really well-done timber museum that is worth visiting. Cannon Beach and Seaside are less than an hour away by car, and Portland is only 45 minutes away.
