Day 7 – September 13: Tygh Valley to The Dalles
“Rolling Home” (43 miles) – Map
One last day of stellar scenery. Ease through some flatlands, then get the work done early with a long, steady climb (the top is NOT just around the next bend). Summit to spectacular vistas on Dufur Gap Road, then head down to a rollicking ride through rolling fields extending in every direction. Other than a few whoop-de-doos, it’s downhill to the finish, through a leafy canyon and then a view you’ll remember: Mt. Hood, the Gorge and The Dalles below.
