TAKE THE FERRY”Take
It is recommended that you call the Ferry in advance to ensure they are in operating. Telephone number for the Ferry is (503) 588-7979.
Directions: Going south from Portland on I-5, take Donald/Aurora Exit #278, turning right onto Ehlen Road. Continue straight ahead east for a total of 5 miles (along the way Ehlen Road becomes Yergen Road, then Yergen Road becomes McKay Road), then turn left onto French Prairie Road. Landmark at the intersection of McKay Road and French Prairie Road is Fergusen’s Fragrant Nursery on the right – nice demonstration gardens, worth a stop!
Go south on French Prairie Road a total of 10 miles. The essential thing to remember is that, for these 10 miles, whenever you are confronted with a choice, go straight ahead. In particular: after 2.1 miles there is a stop sign where French Prairie Road becomes Highway 219. Go straight ahead south. After another 2.8 miles there is another stop sign where French Prairie/219 becomes River Road. Do not turn; go straight ahead south 5.3 miles further, then turn right on Matheny Road. (Matheny Road is just past Concomly Road; if you get to Waconda Road you have gone too far.) Go 3 miles on Matheny Road, through the hop fields with their towering trellis system – a sight to behold in the growing season, then turn right onto Wheatland Road and follow it to the ferry landing.
After you cross the river, go straight ahead on Wheatland Road about a mile, then turn left on Wallace Road (Highway 221). Go 2.8 miles on Wallace Road, perhaps stopping at Daum’s produce stand for whatever is in season, then turn right onto Hopewell Road and immediately left onto Spring Valley Road. Go 3.8 miles on Spring Valley Road to Zena Road, passingCristom Vineyards and Witness Tree Vineyard on the right, slowing down to admire the iconic view of historic Zena Church as you come down the hill. Turn right on Zena Road. Go 1.7 miles on Zena Road, passing St. Innocent Winery on the right. At the crest of the hill, turn right onto Bethel Heights Road and go about a mile up the road, then turn right at the sign for Bethel Heights Vineyard. Welcome!
