Tygh Valley to Madras

Wasco County, OR, US

Route Overview

Cycle Oregon

Best Bike Ride in America

77 mi.
6,013 ft.

“Cowboys and Indians”

This route includes plenty of the windy wide-open. After a “good morning-legs” climb leaving Tygh Valley, head to the Warm Springs Reservation for a taste of the high desert. Big rollers will make you appreciate gravity’s power, and you just might see wild horses. Kah-Nee-Tah Resort provides an oasis; in the afternoon enjoy splendid views of Pelton Dam and Lake Simtustus before taking on one of the toughest climbs in Oregon before finishing in Madras.
