ALL SUMMITS AND PASSES - ALPHABETICAL ORDER
B
Barlow Pass -UNP 4155ft- the first historic road over the Cascade Range in Oregon. Today you can get to the highest point also with two paved approaches. But one of the old historic approaches is now a dirt road.

Bennett Pass -PVD 4670ft- major highway on the east side of Mount Hood with one or two nice views

BLM 23-8-28 Elliot State Forest(sh) -PVD 2260ft- paved Oregon forest isolation, courtesy of Elliot State Forest

Blue Box Pass -PVD 4024ft- nondescript highway through the Cascade forest

Buck Creek Rd/ Lindy Bridge Rd s(u) -PVD 1470ft- this is a small summit in the Oregon forest. But I had no idea there were narrow isolated roads like this one in the USA

Buck Creek Rd via Soup Creek Rd(sh) -PVD 1410ft- this is a variation on the one above. But it reaches a different summit point, therefore a separate page
C
Camp Creek Road - BLM 25-7-5.1(sh) -PVD 2120ft- this is the highest point on an interesting Oregon forest loop ride
F
Fairview Mountain Road s(u) -UNP 2240ft- dirt road climb above the Pacific coast near Florence, but you don't see much of the coast. Trees compensate.

FR16 Vista Ridge s(u) -PVD 3750ft- the traffic free, highest point of a 96 percent paved ride around Mount Hood

FR58 Klickitat Rd s(u) -UNP 2160ft- another Coastal Range dirt road, where bicycles somehow seem smaller because of big trees

FR1828 Lolo Pass s(u) -PVD 3690ft- isolated, short, completely paved loop on the west side of Mount Hood
L
Lolo Pass -UNP 3460ft- logging road on the west side of Mount Hood, nice views of the mountain with logging devastation in the foreground

Luchsinger Creek Rd s(u) -UNP 910ft- small dirt road climb next to the Umpqua River, main attraction is deep forest isolation
O
Or35 Government Camp (sh) -PVD 4030ft- wide, busy highway to Mount Hood ski area. But this road is part of many interesting loop possibilities
S
Salt Creek Summit -PVD 6070ft- a series of long forest climbs in the Hell's Canyon area

Seven Mile Hill Rd s(u) -PVD 1800ft- this is one of the higher climbs next to the Columbia Gorge

SFR2000 Scholfield Ridge Rd s(u) -UNP 1850ft- one of the higher climbs in Coastal Range near Reedsport
T
Timberline Lodge: Mount Hood -PVD 5900ft- this ride to a high point on Mount Hood, is the biggest completely paved climb in Oregon, that I am aware of.
U
US30 historical: Canticlear Point(sh) -PVD 900ft- another very small, but inversely proportional scenic climb, next to the Columbia Gorge

US30 Rowena Crest s(u) -PVD 740ft- this is really just a bump in the road. But a little climbing goes a long way in the scenery department next to the Columbia Gorg

US101 Cape Foulweather s(u) -PVD 560ft- a tiny climb on the Pacific Coast bike route. But if the weather is not foul, the view is great.
