Description:
From Hood River to Hood River Meadows turnoff via back way to Parkdale via Dee Hwy, then Cooper Spur Road. Return via Hwy 35, then through Odell to rejoin Dee Hwy where it crosses west branch of Hood River. 5,000 feet of climbing to turn around; approx 3.5 hours continuous climb. Actually a very pleasant climb through orchards, sub alpine and alpine regions. I rate it hard only because of total distance. I would rate the climbing medium: two sections at 5%, the rest of the route 3-4% Good roads all the way except about a 10 mile of coarse chip seal from Parkdale (Mt. Hood Store) to Hanel Lumber Mill. The best route would be Hwy 35 to Parkdale turnoff, the back to Hood river via Dee hwy.
