40 mile loop

Which direction is better to ride to avoid headwinds? I am taking a friend out this weekend who is not a strong rider so I want to make it as easy as possible.

Thanks

Banks-Vernonia trail

How much of this trail is paved? Is it something that I can ride my road bike on or do I need to put on the cross tires?
