Three Family Rides 2017

All Rides begin near the Port of Clarkston Offices

Join families for a fall cruise along the Snake River to Asotin for the first two choices. The third takes you west to Nisqually John Landing. We’ll start at the Port of Clarkston Offices, ride behind Quality Inn, through the Corps of Engineers Parking Lot, take the GreenBelt Trail for a mile to Beachview Park. From there the trail takes us along the river and through Swallows Nest Park and all the way  to Chief Looking Glass Park in Asotin. Because this is an out-and-back route, you may turn around at any point. The Corps has carefully marked distances along the trail so you may better adjust your total distance. Bike Paths are often busy and confusing since many trail users do not understand the rules. Please view this video about trail riding.

Family Fun Ride: 7 miles (6.1)

This ride starts the same as the other two but turns around at picnic gazebo at the bottom of 22nd avenue just in the parking lot for the children’s playground.

This actually gives you only 6.1 miles. Ride up to the Swallows Next Boat Launch, loop the parking lot and return, for closer to the 7.

Family Fun Ride: 14 miles

Here’s a family friendly 25 miles with the only hill being the access to Red Wolf Crossing. Join with the 50 milers  this year leaving the port of Clarkston on this low-traffic route. Both groups cross Red Wolf and head west on Down River Road toward Wawawai Canyon.

Enjoy views of the breaks of the Snake River to Nisqually John Landing. You might see wildlife along the river banks and up the walls of the canyon.
