Shaniko - Sunday, June 26, 2011

Print Home


The Shaniko ride starts out with the ascent to Mt. Hood and leaves the main highway to its east heading for Wamic and Tygh Valley. A detour over Sherar's Bridge Highway ends up in Grass Valley for lunch at the Country Cafe, then south to the ride's furthest point, Shaniko for dessert at Goldies Ice Cream Parlor. The return route traces back over the high country of Bakeoven Road to Maupin for gas and the home run back to Hwy 26. If time allows, we'll leave Hwy 26 at Zigzag and take the scenic route along East Barlow Trail and Marmot Roads back to Sandy and westward back to Portland.
