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, 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, go 31 miles south on Hwy. 35 to Forest Road 44 on the left. Ascend up Road 44 for 3.5 miles to the Surveyor’s Ridge trailhead on the left.

Highlights: Do this ride as either an out-and-back along Tr. 688 or ride out Tr. 688 and back on Forest Service Road 17. Incredible rolling single-track and views. The trail contours along the edge of a steep ridge for most of its length.

Note: Pay close attention to the map and landmarks along the way as many roads and trails intersect the Surveyor’s Ridge trail. Use caution if riding on FS 17, as traffic can move fast.

Seasons: Late spring through late fall

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
