Buffed out single-track and awesome views of Mount Hood, Mount Adams, Mount St. Helens, and Mount Rainier highlight this fun loop. The ride includes short stretches on gravel roads and double-tracks, but most of the trip is on single-track. Obstacles in the tread can create situations that require developed bike-handling skills. Energetic intermediate cyclists might enjoy this ride but may have to walk from time to time. This outing is approximately 35 miles south of Hood River.

A very fun/fast trail. The map posted here is old though(trail does not cross 17 near knebal campground). Once in Knebal Springs campground, you will exit the campground and take FR17 south for a while(slow and booooring). All in all a great ride when combined with eightmile.
