Highlights

Highlight: Hood River OHV Trail 199
Just outside of Hood River, Oregon Trail 199 is short in distance but easy and fun to drive. It can be used as a connector to several other OHV Trails and Forest Service Roads in the area around Kingsley Reservoir. This narrow trail is within the forest, with thick trees lining both sides. Amazing views of Mt. Hood and the Hood River Valley can be seen from nearby roads. Typically used as a short section of a longer route – this uphill climb has plenty of decent-sized rocks and ruts to challenge the novice driver.
