Barlow Trail

Overview

(From Oregon Bikepacking)

Although I wouldn’t expect many of you to similarly geek out over the history of the Barlow Road, this route does its best to follow what’s left of the historical wagon trail around Mount Hood.  Beginning in Dufur, the route travels south through Tygh Valley before heading west, crossing the White River, and joining up with the Barlow proper.   After climbing up the flanks of Mount Hood along the wagon trail, you’ll have the option of descending the now single track Pioneer Bridle Trail, another remnant of a bygone era of wagon travel, before heading over Lolo Pass and looping back around to Dufur.More highlights of the route include the views from Postage Stamp Butte, exploring several historic cemeteries including the Pioneer Woman’s grave, drinking hard earned beers in Zig Zag, unparallelled views of all four sides of Mt. Hood, and enjoying more beers at Solera Brewing in Parkdale before killing the last long gravel descent back towards Dufur.
