Crossing two beautiful railroad trestles and 13 bridges, the Banks-Vernonia State Trail in Oregon is a fantastic rail-trail for bicyclists, walkers, inline skaters, cross-country skiers and equestrians. At 21 miles long, this asphalt trail connects the Oregon towns of Banks and Vernonia as well as passing through the small towns of Manning, Tophill, Stub Stewart, Beaver Creek and Buxton. This rail trail used to support a timber train, then a passenger train that ran from Vernonia & Keasey to Portland, OR.
