+1000. I made the trek this weekend and the ride there and back was amazing. It helped that my wife doesn't ride and she drove the car (with all our camping gear) to the trailhead, so I was able to ride light.
Traffic was incredibly sparse and the ride quite beautiful up to the Banks-Vernonia trail. The trail itself is awesome. I was also extremely impressed with the campsites in the hiker/biker area. Several are quite secluded and offer good privacy. This may have been my favorite camping trip to date.
It was admittedly cold at night, though!
