Biking

Hood River County caters to road cyclists and mountain bikers alike. You can crank out the miles on scenic roadways, and ride buffed-out single track all in one weekend. Road cyclists often head east along the Mosier Twin Tunnels Trail, and continue along the Historic Columbia River highway to the scenic overlook at Rowena Crest.

Please check trail conditions and closures before you ride.
