Hood River Mountain Loop (Long)
This is a Training Route: a good local ride, but not a 5 Star destination ride.
Get your climbing legs on, this route will work you! Fun, paved descent. Gravel Girl and Captain O of the Dirty Freehub Team have ridden this route and really enjoyed it. The route is listed as a Training Route in that it uses elements of other 5 Star Routes and that the gravel climb doesn’t give much back in the way of views. However, if we lived in Hood River, this would be a go to route for us.
