Surveyor's Ridge

Surveyor's Ridge Professional Review and Guide

"This trail is one of the classic singletrack Oregon rides that has everything an avid cyclist could ever want—creek crossings, rocks, roots, gravel, steep ascents, and a gutwrenching, arm-aching descent. You’ll also have phenomenal views of Mount Hood. Trail surface: Singletrack, gravel roads, and paved roads.

From Surveyor’s Ridge Trail 688, cyclists will get a bird’s-eye view of Mount Hood and the surrounding ridges and extensive valleys.This grand view makes up only a small portion of the 189,000-acre Mount Hood National Forest, which stretches more than 60 miles from the Columbia River Gorge south to the Olallie Scenic Area at the base of Mount Jefferson in the Central Cascades. Mount Hood is the centerpiece of this national forest and has been an indelible landmark for residents and visitors alike for centuries."

This trail was a wonderful experience. It has a nice variety of trail conditions-flat gravel, inclines and descents, undergrowth and wider areas, and many types of flora and fauna. We were lucky to have the perfect temperature and a cloudless sky-the views were breathtaking! It was a day well spent. I highly recommend camping in Mount Hood National Forest and doing this trail!

Very good trail, the start is a bit of a climb, with no warm up it can be a challenge. Super cool views that can't be beat!!!
