In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.
Trailhead: From Hood River, head east on State St., cross Hwy. 35 and drive up the old Columbia River Hwy. to the parking area, or ride your bike from town and avoid the $3 parking fee (but note that this is a pretty strenuous climb on a bike – way more than the trail itself has).
Highlights: Beautiful views of the Columbia River Gorge, diverse ecology as you pass through climate zones and interesting signage of the old highway’s history. Plus some of the best segments are closed to motor vehicles.
Note: This restored portion of the Historic Columbia River Highway is popular with walkers, joggers and bikers so control your speed. Road riders use this route to access additional paved roads out of Mosier. If parking at the trailhead, expect to pay a $3 fee at the self-service kiosk.
A detailed map of this trail and others nearby is available through Adventure Maps, an Oregon company, at local bike shops and outdoor retailers, as well as online at www.adventuremaps.net.
