Hood River Mountain Loop (Short)

Development Route / by Captain ‘O’ & Gravel Girl

The shorter of the two versions of the Hood River Mountain Loop. And … yes, it still works you on the climb! The Dirty Freehub team of Gravel Girl and Captain O have ridden most, not all, of this route and really enjoyed it. The route is relegated to 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.
