The route heads out towards Shevlin Park on wide-shouldered Shevlin Park Road. After a quick climb out of the canyon, the route passes through Juniper and Pine forests along Johnson Road. The next 11 miles seem effortless, as the gentle rolling terrain of low-traffic country roads take you past agricultural land and great Cascade views. After a refreshing pause at the Tumalo rest stop, its a gentle climb back to Bend and the Post Ride Party.
Total gain: 1343 feet. Follow the ORANGE arrows on the road.
