This pair of bicycle rides nourishes both the body and the soul. The Carson Hot Springs Challenge takes you along the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge to Carson Hot Springs. There you can pamper your body with a soak in the healthful mineral waters, a professional massage, and a relaxed stay at this charming resort. The companion ride, the Carson Return Challenge, takes you along the Oregon side of the river back to your starting point. The combination of hard riding, spectacular scenery, and pampering has long made Carson Hot Springs a popular destination with bicyclists. Terrain: path across the Columbia River bridge, old road with light traffic along the Evergreen Hwy. to Camas, moderately busy highway with good shoulders the rest of the way to Carson; one 900-ft climb.
