Join Cycle Wild at Panther Creek Campground, in Washington's Gifford Pinchot National Forest! The campground is beautifully forested, and located directly along Panther Creek.
Our route will take us along the Historic Columbia River Highway, including last year's new piece of trail, out to Cascade Locks. We'll then cross the Bridge of the Gods to the Washington side of the river and continue to ride on a beautiful 6 mile stretch of Hwy 14, through Stevenson (where we'll stop for a pint and snacks at Walking Man Brewing, either out or back or both). We'll then leave the highway and travel through Carson and up 8 miles into Gifford Pinchot to our campground. The one-way mileage for this trip is approximately 60 miles, with around 3,400' of total elevation gain. This will be a no-drop trip, but the pace will be semi-brisk (think 12mph average, and remember you're riding a loaded bike), so this trip is probably not appropriate for children or dogs. Because of the mileage, this is an advanced trip.
For those feeling spunky, we can ride an additional 7 miles up NF-65 to the ah-mazing Panther Creek Falls.
As with all our trips, you must be a Cycle Wild member and you must register to camp with us. Our starting location will be given out to folks who register.
