#15: Dufur Valley Road • 21.5 mi • 3309 ft


It’s a paved road in a national forest that goes up (or down) 3,000 feet from folksy, East-Oregon Dufur to foresty Mount Hood National Forest, then down to the Hood River. The descent from the top to Dufur is so long that you’ll literally get bored by how awesome it is. Use it to loop with the extended Skyline or Fivemile or Pleasant Ridge climbs — or keep going and ride it right off the edge of this website and over to 44trails.org.
