The Dalles / Sevenmile Loop - Sunday, June 14, 2009

Route Details: OUT Route Details: BACK Stats Photos Print Home


This ride starts on the scenic route east through the Columbia Gorge before crossing over the great river back into Oregon at Hood River. A short hop on the freeway going east takes us to the little burg of Mosier, the winding blacktop of the Rowena Point area and the south facing hills to the west of The Dalles. After traversing the downtown area, more sweepers and lonely canyons await to the east of town, eventually looping back south toward sleepy Dufur where a pub lunch awaits. From Dufur, a backroad ride through the idyllic green Dufur Valley takes us back into the Mt. Hood National Forest. On clear days, stunning views of Cascade Range volcanic peaks await.
