Surveyor's Ridge Trail

Surveyor's Ridge Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The trail is mostly single-track. Parts of the trail require excellent bike-handling skills, while others are smooth. This loop utilizes 12.4 miles of the trail, with a return on paved and gravel roads.

Longer and shorter loops are possible. On clear days, views of the Hood River Valley, Mt. Hood, and Mt. Adams are spectacular. Most of the uphills are easy to moderately difficult; there are about 1.5 miles of steep climbing (some are unrideable). The trailhead is approximately 30 miles south of Hood River."

What can I say? Bliss, pure heaven . . . I want to go back! This ride has it all for the rider who likes tight singletrack and the periodic break to just abosorb the beauty.

Forget about doing the ride from north to south. You'd miss one of the most incredible endings to this ride. Creeks, massive vistas, excellant single track that throws everything at you from smooth to "What the hell was I thinking"? The good news is that none of it lasts for too long. I will say though, there is much more downhill than uphill. Take a camera. Off to the left side of the trail are "You gotta' see this" vistas of Hood River and the N.E. side of Mt. Hood especially when the trees are in bloom. You will need to drop a car at the bottom to get you back to the start of the ride. Bring lots of water. Eat often to keep up your energy and all will be well.

This trail is what mountain bikes were made for. Lots of very technical challenges, splendid views, varied terrain, this one is as good as it gets. Do it as a loop with the Dog River and Oak Ridge Trails.
