The Eastside Road ride offers great views of the Hood River Valley and Mount Hood, with roads that are less busy than the Hood River County Fruit Loop (an adjacent route).

To begin, ride State Street east from Hood River’s downtown area, cross Highway 35 by China Gorge restaurant and ride up a hill toward the Mark O. Hatfield trailhead to the split in the road. When you approach the split, take Highline Road to the right. This section is very steep, but it’s less than half a mile long — so get those legs moving and keep breathing! It’ll be over soon.

Highline becomes Eastside Road, which takes you through a section of two-lane backroad rollers. This ride offers lots of quick stops and fun things to see — such as Panorama Point, the Pinegrove School House and Rasmussen Farms (on Thomsen Road).

Come back the way you came.
