    The big problem with 213 is very heavy traffic including trucks. You would need to get the bike lane off of 213 because the traffic is almost all 65 MPH and very noisy due to the volume. It is not much better than riding next to a freeway and on Freeway bike paths sound barriers are the only way to make a bike path enjoyable. I don't see sound barriers all the distance of 213 as viable. There are better low traffic routes to get north and south in this area.

    213 is a death-trap for bicycles. I believe that the accident statistics speak for themselves. It's a heavily-traveled, high-speed car and freight corridor. That said, I covet the opportunity to be able to ride my bike out to Molalla safely. Beavercreek is not really a viable alternative in my mind. I would be interested to see what can be done to make 213 safer without adversely impacting commuters and commerce in South County.

    I like this route rather than Hwy 213. too much vehicle traffic

    Beavercreek Rd. should be a principal route; it is too far out of the way to expect Beavercreek to Oregon City traffic to use Hwy 213 -- people won't do that. The road counts determined that 50 bikes a day go on this stretch in Beavercreek Rd. south of Henrici (studies suggest the actual number is probably twice that and some of the tubes didn't cross the bike lane). Beavercreek Rd. has more destinations on it, more closely located that Hwy 213 e.g. it has the phone company (with meeting rooms), the down town with the community center including PO, Grange (many community meetings), Corner Park, restaurant/pub and then a little further the Soil and Water Conservation District Farm and then the elementary school and fire station (more community meetings).

    The alternative is far more desirable due to less vehicles

    I cycle this route frequently for pleasure. The roads are narrow but the traffic is light and cordial. Any improvements would be welcome.

    Although high traffic volumes, spees, and freight, this route seems safest for bikes/peds/drivers to see each other. Widening or buffered striping could help increase awareness.

    Lovely route, but very windey and steep. Doesn't seem very safe.

    It makes good sense to use the old railroad right of way for a biking/hiking trail alongside Highway 213. The grade is good and much of the right of way has already been purchased by Metro. It also could connect to the walking trail around Clackamas Community College.

    This route would provide access to places currently difficult to access by bike. Its potential to tie in with hiking and mountain bike trails is particularly exciting. This should be one of Oregon City / Metro / ClackCo's top priorities.

    Does this trail exist? I don't see it on Google maps. I commute by bike every day on 213, and it would be wonderful if I could get off of the dangerous highway.

    Linn Ave - Leland Rd

    Adding bicycle infrastructure to Linn Ave here will be difficult due to the slopes and limited ROW. The street is very steep and curvy with low visibility - not good for cycling.
    Instead, consider the future paths that will lead out of the Blue Heron property - a connection from there to the regional trail network will be needed anyway. Is there an option to connect the Molalla Corridor with the Canby Corridor somewhere in Oregon City near South End road?

    This is a great location due to its proximity to the community college and OC high school. HWY 213 near Clackamas Community College is very busy with very fast traffic. Consider routing the trail through the community college campus if possible.

    I like this route best since it is a pretty direct route between the cities and uses a less travelled route.
