Summit Ridge

5 Star Route / Ridden and Reviewed by Gravel Girl & Captain ‘O

Why this route should be on your bucket list!

Bold on color…
Hay fields against blue skies.

Bold on views…
Continuous open sky views of Mt Hood, Mt Adams, and even Mt St Helen’s.

Bold on incline…
A big sustained climb so you can earn a big ripping downhill.

Plus… a charming agricultural town with a whole lot of history. And double plus… an array of hydrological features of the Fifteenmile Watershed: Fifteenmile creek, the hollows, and Summit Ridge. **Read More

When we like to ride this …

We really like this area in the springtime, when the fields are green and the flowers are in bloom. The area also rides well in the fall (and sometimes all through winter). Summer can be hot and … windy days can be brutal. The route is exposed and offers up little protection from the elements.

The Start

Friends of Dufur park. Flush toilets. Water.
Lat / Long:  45.450631, -121.125114
