Terry Richard of OregonLive has a nice article on the Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail opening in Cascade Locks. read an excerpt below.

Byclists will soon have a new recreation option after a missing link in the Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail opens west of Cascade Locks. The section will be fully useable after Oct. 31.

Scot Sullenger, who owns the Cascade Motel in Cascade Locks, thinks it could be a perfect weekend outing for Portlandesr. In fact, he plans to do it in reverse himself.

This is how it will work. For the first time since the construction of Interstate 84 in the 1960s, there will be an alternative route between Troutdale to Cascade Locks without the need for using any part of the freeway.
