#14: Dry Creek Road • 5.3 mi • 1213 ft • gravel, paved


An absolute gem in a hidden valley, Dry Creek climbs from Mosier to the top of 7 Mile Hill at a perfect gradient, with wide-open views of the Dry Creek hollow below. There’s gravel, there’s grass, there’s orchards, there’s stands of scraggly trees. It’s another perfect road outside The Dalles!

Dry Creek is the best way to start a ride from Mosier that connects to the many other perfect roads of the Dalles or to get to the top of 7 Mile Hill.
