#13: 5 Mile Road • 17.8 mi • 2721 ft
It’s yet another amazing, super-long Dalles road that climbs from down low in the dry Eastern Oregon grasslands through a wooded valley all the way up to Mount Hood National Forest — what more do you need?
Similar to Three Mile, 5 Mile follows its namesake creek. It also has rock shelves — tons of ‘em. Unline Three Mile, its creek keeps going all the way to Mount Hood National Forest, so you stay down low in the valley for a long time.
Another great way to climb up or descend to or from Skyline, 5 Mile, Pleasant Ridge, or just keep going forever into the Forest.
