Dufur & Friend (Tygh Valley Start)

5 Star Route

Note: This is a 5 Star Route, meaning that it is a highly curated, premier riding route.

This route is the little cousin of the 5 Star route Dufur & Friend. It is a great ride rolling through wheat and hay fields, climbing into the Mt. Hood National forest (on gravel and a rugged single lane paved road), and giving back with a 6 mile “let go of the brakes” descent. We have ridden this route and love it!

For a full route description see the guide for Dufur & Friend.
