Yamhill Loop

Development Route

Note: This is a Development Route, meaning that it is a work in progress and currently does not meet the Dirty Freehub 5 Star standard for great routes.

Ride through some of the beautiful hills of Oregon’s wine and timber country and meander along the Yamhill river. Expect lots of fast gravel mixed with some short, tough climbs.

This route is based on the Yamhill Gravel Fondo of 2019. For a taste of the riding, check out this video.

A Dirty Freehub Route Ambassador recently did this ride and thinks it deserves 5 Star status. Now, we just need to get busy and fully document the route. Until then, we have designated the route as a Development Route. Tell us what you think!

    Rode this on the rare sunny winter day (12/24/2020). Had a great time. Tremendous views of rolling hills after that +10% grade. Can tell that this would be a great summer ride as the temperature got significantly cooler in the areas around the North Yamhill River!

    Rode this Sunday 8/23/20 and saw few vehicles on the gravel until Flying M Road. Beautiful valleys and creeks. Nice gravel and a short busy paved section coming back to town.

  • Joel B says:

    Did this 6/27/2020. Great route, but not much scenery. Also a lot of traffic for the back roads.

      Joel, thanks for leaving a comment!! This really helps us get the right classification for this ride. (Note – we plan on breaking out the concept of Training Routes into two new categories of routes. Sidekick routes (we think that will be the name) — routes that are fun to ride, have been ridden by the DF Team, but just don’t meet 5 Star Criteria and Development Routes – routes that we have investigated, mapped, but have not been ridden in their entirety by the DF Team. Again, thanks for the feedback!
