This ride is about 70 miles southeast of Portland. Tread: rough gravel road for 12.1 miles, rocky singletrack for 5.7 miles. Hazards: clouds of mosquitoes appear at every stop. Exposed roots and loose cobbles make riding the trail difficult. The 6-mile climb on Forest Road 4220 to the ridge above Breitenbush Lake is slow enough to make the road’s washboard surface unnoticeable. The Pacific Crest Trail crosses the road on this ridge; Olallie Lake is 5.2 miles north from this point. Almost a third of the trail consists of cobble-filled ruts, but it is rideable. The trail runs through several marshy areas that are firm enough to ride.
