Two Wheel Exploration
By: Mary Pellegrini
Explore the area on two wheels!
Top family biking spot: Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail. Start at the Mark O. Hatfield West Trailhead in Hood River, and go 4.5 miles, through the historic Twin Tunnels, to the other end of this car-free section of highway, in Mosier.
Ride from Hood River to The Dalles via the Historic Columbia River Highway. This road ride is one of the best in the state, with epic Gorge views and an awesome descent on the famed Rowena Curves. You’ll earn your beer if you do it as a round-trip, with 50 miles and 3,000 feet of climbing!
Consider renting an e-bike for getting around town. They are Grandma-tested and loads of fun!
