We always hit Sauvie Island for a spin when we're in PDX. There's a nice 12-mile loop, plus out and backs you can do from that. The traffic is generally light and at a decent rate of speed. It is, of course, absolutely flat. There's a great parking spot just off the bridge, and a store for sandwiches, etc., nearby. Also along the route are several U-pick places, a craft store that sells local jams and jellies, and, in late August, plenty of marionberries along the sides of the road.

Sobey Island is a great place to visit no matter the season. The farms have pumpkin patches corn mazes etc. during the fall spring and summer is great for hikes hanging out on the water and people watching. My understanding is Bugsy Siegel used to have a casino here Wayback in the day. LOL check out the history.

I LOVE driving out here on weekends! During the summer the farmers always have fresh produce. It is a peaceful area even though it can be busy with folks coming out to the famers markets. You can always spot wildlife! The beach is a good place to cool off!

Mostly farms and nature preserves on the island... it is really beautiful. I really dislike the crowds down near the beaches, and people drive in really annoying ways. The berry farms are awesome and fun to explore.

This is one of those places that I have been going to several time a year since I was a kid! Whether it's for the orchards and the u-picks, the pumpkin patch, or river lounging-- it's a special place for Portland and for me!
