McMinnville Muddy Valley Wine Ride

Named after the Muddy Creek that flows through the area, this route will take you into the heart of the McMinnville American Viticulture Area (AVA). Stop in at wineries like Maysara to learn their history, or just enjoy the slight hills (and views) of the rolling vineyards.

Ride Tips:

  • Safety: Limited shoulders and visibility on some country roads
  • Services: Bathrooms, snacks, and/or water available at Bellevue Country Store (mile 12) and Farmer John’s (mile 18), otherwise limited; bring extra water
  • Best Eats: Stop at Bellevue Country Store (mile 12) for gourmet snacks, housemade caramels, and Stumptown coffee.
