Day 2 – September 8: Glenwood to Dufur
“Take Me to the River” (61 or 86 miles)
Roll out of camp enjoying lingering views of Mt. Adams. A short stretch of gravel pays off a few miles later as you dive off the edge of a rim for 10 miles of exhilarating downhill with postcard views of Mt. Hood and the Gorge. Hope for a tailwind back to the The Dalles, then decide whether you want to take on the long option to Rowena Crest. Climb south through fertile orchards and then take on some very large rollers before dropping into Dufur.
