Great way to combine bird watching, wine and gravel riding. This loop is great for the beginner. Less than .5 mile on Highway 99 (wide shoulders). The route has a total of 290 feet of elevation gain. The route has some gentle rollers and gravel is 3/4 minus but there are usually worn areas where cars have traveled. You really get a sense of the beauty of the valley on the ride with very pretty views of the slough and West Salem hills.
Outhouse at start. Wineries: Van Duzer and Cherry Hill Winery.
