Located in the Columbia River Gorge, Hood River is a fantastic place to cycle. It’s sunny for most of the year in Hood River, even on dreary Portland days, which makes for a pleasant nearby escape from the rain. This dynamic town has many low-traffic rural roads that begin on the outer limits of town and wind through the broad expanse of the Hood River Valley. This loop takes you through the orchards and farms of the scenic Hood River Valley. Majestic Mount Hood, Mount Adams, and Mount St. Helens provide a stunning backdrop as you ride uphill from Tucker Park in Hood River to the quaint community of Parkdale. In Parkdale, you can explore the Hutson Museum and have lunch.
