Cedar Hills to Sylvan Hills

CYCLE PORTLAND, ROAD RIDE, CEDAR HILLS TO SYLVAN HILLS In one direction this is an exhilarating downhill bike ride from beautiful Washington Park to the shopping centers of Cedar Hills Boulevard along a car-free bike path that parallels. Taking the route in the opposite direction provides a great hill climbing training bike ride up to Washington Park at the top of the West Hills where the Oregon Zoo, the World Forestry Center, Hoyt Arboretum, and the Children’s Museum are located. The bike path is wide and separated from both the residential areas on one side and the highway on the other. Expect to find cyclists of all ages using this bike path as their preferred way to avoid the street traffic of alternative routes. Side Trip Oregon Zoo, World Forestry Center, Children’s Museum, Hoyt Arboretum, Japanese Garden, and the International Rose Garden. FOOD AND DRINK There are restrooms at Washington Park, and numerous places to purchase snacks, water, and other supplies in several shopping centers along Cedar Hills Boulevard and at the Beaverton Transit Center.
