Stay Safe

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.

The route takes you up on the ridge overlooking the Deschutes River. Great views of the mountains from Jefferson to Rainier. Very low traffic roads, and both the pavement and gravel is great. Two very short sections on US-197, but it’s over quickly.

Tires: 28-32c
