Total Elev. Loss:
-1,658 ft.
Distance:
24.13 miles
Total Elev. Gain:
1,652 ft.

This loop provides a stunning visual of undulating terrain around the Grande Ronde River. Most of the roads have a great gravel surface except for a rocky descent down the northeast side of Pumpkin Ridge.

Imbler lakes tour

by Brian Sather — Posted Thu, Mar 23, 2017

Road conditions are superb for gravel riding right now. These roads are smoother than the chunk sealed "paved" roads in the county. Take the opportunity to view the many ponds and lakes in the Imbler Lake's Basin. The fields are nice and green. Perfect, except for a few of the roads that were being graded during the day which included Part of Imbler Road and End Road.

A rather big loop that goes up Indian Creek on the north side of Mt. Harris, summits the mountain at the lookout and towers, and comes back down the south side on Mt. Harris Road to Grays Corner. Most of the road is good gravel, but it does get a bit rutted and rocky closer to the summit. ...
