Fort Stevens State Park

Beginner's Luck: With a network of paved, mostly-level bike paths, exploring Fort Stevens State Park in Warrenton on two wheels is a great activity for families and beginning bikers. Get the kids jazzed on the joys of cycling with a foray along this smooth and easy web of well-maintained paths. Set aside time to explore the surrounding ocean and forest scenery, tackle a self-guided tour or check out the Fort Stevens museum and other can't-miss, stop-off attractions, including old war bunkers and a shipwreck. This trail is made for meandering. Be ready to share the road with a small crowd; on a warm weekend, these trails fill up quick. The Route: Don't rush a good thing! This nine-mile web of paved, well-trodden trails winds through such a wide array of scenic and historic interest points that it's best tackled in sections; give yourself a weekend to explore.
