Crater Lake’s Rim Drive – Car Free
No dirt on this ride, and nothing epic either. But I’m posting about it because despite being a tame ride, Crater Lake’s Rim Drive were car free and had the sort of isolated, spooky feeling one usually only gets on dirt roads. There weren’t even a lot of cyclists. I don’t think I saw more than 20 once I got deeper into the road.
If the NPS opens the roads to only bikes again next year, I don’t know that I’d make the drive down from Portland *just* to ride the road, but I’d consider making a long weekend out of it, especially considering Oakridge is a nice stopping point. It would also be fun to haul camping gear on the ride around and spend the night on Mt. Scott.
