Mount Hood to Columbia River Gorge Singletrack (MTB)

Location:  OR, United States
Starting From: US $1,195.00

Mt. Hood to Columbia River Gorge

An incredibly diverse succession of terrain (glacial plains, mountain ridges, rainforests, woodlands, and orchard valleys) forms this monumental mountain bike tour from Oregon's most prominent landmark, Mt. Hood down to the Columbia River Gorge.

After following a portion of the historic Oregon Trail along the flanks of Mt. Hood, our bike trip traces an ancient glacial ridgeline to the Columbia River National Scenic Area. Along the way we'll experience the legendary singletrack atop Surveyor's Ridge, the thrilling descent from High Prairie, and panoramic views of the Cascade Mountain Range. This mountain bike trip is filled with exciting novelties such as camping at a fire lookout tower, crisscrossing glacier-fed streams, riding through the scenic Hood River Valley, and dipping into the cool waters of the mighty Columbia River. Highlights include views of Mt. Adams and Mt St. Helens as well!

Though we descend from alpine to high desert (a total elevation loss of 4,000 feet), this is an athletic bike tour with a significant amount of climbing and descending each day. Many of the trails we follow have options for easier logging roads and/or more technical singletrack, making this an ideal mountain bike tour for riders of varying abilities.

Escape Adventures operates under a special use permit in the Mt Hood National Forest.
