This Unique Rail Biking Experience In Oregon Belongs On Your Bucket List

I write like it's my job - because it is! I have a Master's in English and love words: crossword puzzles, Scrabble games, Wordle, and, of course, good, old-fashioned books.
I'm a writer and editor at OnlyInYourState, and a contributing writer at Cincinnati Magazine. I love the Great Outdoors and am endlessly awestruck by this beautiful country of ours. Coffee keeps me going, yoga keeps me sane, my kids keep me grounded, and my writing keeps me inspired.
Oregon is full of surprises. For instance, you might know Cottage Grove, Oregon as the Covered Bridge Capital of the West, but did you know this charming little locale was also home to a unique rail trail, too? Running for 17 miles along the route of the former Oregon Pacific & Eastern Railroad line, the Row River Trail will take you past Dorena Dam and the historic Bohemia Mining District. This Oregon rail trail is well-suited for a relaxing day ride, with the historic rail line, winsome bridges, and beautiful scenery providing the most delightful biking experience!
