    Oregon Trip/ride Recommendation

    I'm going to be down in Oregon in early May and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on place to ride/camp near Portland. I'll be near Newberg for a few days and then planning to stop somewhere else for a day or 2 on my way back to Seattle to do some biking/camping. I found some info on Stubbs Stewart state park, which looks like a pretty good option. Would that be a good place to stay a night or 2 and ride in early May? Are conditions pretty good there in Spring? Any other good options near Portland? Thx for any ideas.

    If you are looking for camground camping, check into the Gales Creek CG. There is a solid 25 to 30 miles of trail accessible from the CG. Do a search for the Gales Creek Trail, Storyburn Trail, Historic Hiking Trail and Sickter Lars. Also, the Wilson River Trail is a short drive down the road. There is easily 2 days of riding here.

    I have only been to Stub Stewart a couple times, there are only a couple short loops.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    Also, the Gales Creek CG is closed during the winter. I'm not sure when it reopens.
