This ride consists of a 12.2 mile loop and two out-and-back spurs. One mile of the ride is paved cycling, and another .3 mile is a snowmobile trail; the remainder of the trail is on gravel roads. The first 3.5 miles of the loop are the most demanding. An ascent brings you to the top of Frog Lake Buttes and a big view of Mt. Hood. You make a technical descent from this high point, then do some route finding to locate an overgrown trail. Following that you enjoy a fun three-mile descent. This ride starts at Frog Lake Sno-Park, about 8 miles south of Government Camp (approximately 60 miles southeast of Portland).

Gravel and uphill slogs. If you want a nice ride in the area, try Timothy Lakes instead.
