Jim O’Horo Memorial Columbia Gorge Explorer – Day Three – Deschutes River to Viento Campground
This ride has been canceled!
Approximate Distance: 51 miles. Estimated riding time 5 - 6 hours Today we travel west following Frontage Rd. to Celilo where we join I-84 until The Dalles. At The Dalles we exit at the marina and follow the River Trail to the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center/Wasco County Museum, then join the old Historic Columbia River Highway and follow it through Hood River. At the west end of Hood River we re-enter I-84 for the last few miles to end the day at Viento State Park. Two large climbs between The Dalles and Hood River can be avoided by traveling on I-84, but lost in the process are some of the most spectacular scenic vistas of the tour.
