Mission Creek Pkwy is a very old old double-track multi-use trail. Some parts of this trail follow what was once (circa. 1928?) built by the WPA to be a 'road' which was never fully realized, and other parts follow an historic railroad grade. The track itself can be pretty rough, but it's wide. There are many river crossings: some have stone bridges (vestiges of the WPA 'road' project?) but there are a handful of other crossings where you have to shoulder your bike and rock-hop or wade through (fluctuates / usually shin-deep).

Access Info

From Beck's Road or from Hwy 210 (a.k.a. Oldenberg Pkwy).

Adaptive Bike Info
aMTB 2 Rating: Obstacles exist. You may or may not be able to ride this solo. Support rider recommended.
