The Riverside National Recreation Tr723 is a relatively short riverside trail which connects Rainbow campground to Riverside campground. Just a fun little trail to ride if camping in the area.
As the profile map shows, the ride involves four 100' ascents, so is not a city park, with up to a 10% grade over the short distance of each hillside traverse.
Rhododendron Ridge Urban Link Tr564 is across the Clackamas River, with no good way to link these two river trails.
Urban Link Tr564 is more intermediate and at 9.7mi, is long enough to be a destination ride.
The 19.5mi (6100' ascent) Rhododendron Ridge Urban Link Tr564 connects Indian Henry campground to RAAB campground, and will be too rough for some intermediate riders.
Depending on recent forest service maintenance, some pathfinding may be required where the trail wanders from the riverside.
Although the ride can start from either campground, Indian Henry is more accessible and at the (slightly) lower elevation.
As with the loss of Clackamas River Tr715, Rhododendron Ridge Urban Link Tr564 may at any time be lost to biking, so please obey any posted biking prohibitions.
Nearby Rhododendron Ridge Tr564 is worth checking out as well, for intermediate riders willing to do some climbing.
