A Painted Lady Inn, located in Northeast Portland provides a calm oasis in the heart of Portland and a convienent starting point. Use the Columbia Gorge Bike Map to determine your pace for adventure through the Gorge.

After a hearty breakfast begin your trek around Mt. Hood by traveling Hwy 35 south through the Hood River Valley. This is a steady climb with spectacular views of Mt. Hood. Located only 13 miles from Hood River, in the Upper Hood River Valley, the Mt. Hood Hamlet could be home base for exploring the many side loops in the Upper Hood River Valley, filled with family farms and friendly communities.
Continue on around Mt Hood and junction with Hwy 26. Travel west to check into the Brightwood Guest House for a true Oregon Lodging experience surrounded by fir and cedar trees. Take a well deserved soak in the hotub on the deck.
