Mt. Hood Backcountry
If you want to know why people who live here put up with a bit of gray through the winter, come out on a fine summer day to this road route that loops from Ripplebrook Ranger Station, up and around Timothy Lake. After climbing through quiet forests for miles, the payoff is a stunning view of Mt. Hood. Later you’ll enjoy one of the best descents in Oregon. This is quintessential Oregon riding.
