The classic 45.4-mile round-trip ride from the Lewis and Clark State Recreation Site in Troutdale to the summit of the Larch Mountain Crater is not a casual Sunday leg stretch. A mettle-testing, 3,800-foot climb through exemplary Northwest forest is the primary reason for the ride. That being said, there are a handful of postcard-worthy views along the way, capped by a 360-degree, jaw- dropping panorama at Sherrard Point, the summit of the Larch Mountain Crater. On a clear day victorious riders can claim views of Mounts Rainier, St. Helens, Adams, and Hood among the visual rewards for their efforts.
