Default Banks-Vernonia Trail Question


What's the pavement on the Banks-Vernonia Trail like? Is it suitable for road bikes? How would it compare to, say, the Springwater Corridor?

Any other advice on this trail?

The trail surface is paved for a few miles at each end and packed gravel in the middle. The gravel sections are not suitable for narrow tires. There is also a 1/4 mile section of gravel road between the end of the pavement on the Banks side and the beginning of the gravel trail.

Here's a link to the OR State Parks page for the trail; there is a link there to the trail map which shows the paved and gravel sections.
