The Mount Hood loop

Riders in a rush could complete a circuit of Mount Hood in two days, or even one if they just want the challenge without slowing down to enjoy the show.  The shortest distance for the loop would cross Lolo Pass on the west side of the mountain, stay on Highway 35 on the east, and cut across from Odell to Lolo Pass Road on the north instead of dropping down to Hood River: roughly 80 miles, with 8000′ of elevation gain.
