Fyi

Just an FYI for folks who might use this for a reference: Faraday Road is closed due to slides. I have no idea when they're going to reopen it. Until they do, you'll just have to go on 224 over the...

Big Eddy county park is another 8 or so miles down the road from Vernonia. You can camp there; it doesn't cut too many miles out of the second day, but it helps a little bit.

224 is great. Amissegger from Boring to Barton is a little narrow, and slightly busy, but you should be fine. 224 from Barton to Estacada is completely flat and has a generous shoulder the whole...

I can't stand all the ads on Map My Ride. I prefer BikeRouteToaster, which has both OSM and Google maps available, easily saves and shares routes, generates .gps files, and has very limited ads.

I wouldn't take Highway 20 over the coast range. Very busy and no shoulder for a lot of it.

I'd also endorse OR 6 over US 26 or US 30 to get to Manzanita.

When approaching the Canby Ferry from the north, for the love of Pete, don't go over Pete's Mt Road.

Much better: cross the Willamette at OC, and get on Willamette Falls Dr. It becomes Borland...

To get from Hillsboro downtown, I like Baseline, Jenkins, Cedar Hills, Park, Wilshire, etc., myself. Not scenic, but fast, flat, straight, and striped for bike lanes the whole way.
