The Cascade Discovery Route



The Cascade Discovery Route is the long and hard way from Hood River to Sisters, OR.  It runs almost 300 miles along the best (bad!) dirt-only roads and several old historic wagon roads. These are the dirt-only roads that came BEFORE the FS Development gravel roads, and have NEVER been improved. It is not a quick juant, nor an easy one. It has taken a couple of rather experienced riders a full three day & nights to get there.  

"Since 2011, I have been working on this Adventure Route. I worked hard finding these gems of bad roads and beautiful vistas, and I wanna share it all for free."  -- Jeff Miller, creator of the CDR
