Since we launched the Local Overnighter Project in late September, we’ve received dozens of submissions, many of which we’re still sifting through and working with contributors to publish. As promised, we’ll be picking one per month as our Overnighter of The Month. Winners will get a prize package or cash, depending on what we’ve lined up.
For October, our favorite published route was sent in by Molly Sugar, whose Frog Lake Loop is a 44-mile route that’s beginner friendly and hops along four lakes in Mt. Hood National Forest. The route offers smooth singletrack and flowing gravel roads in between towering Douglas firs and ponderosa pines. It also goes through Little Crater Lake, a geological oddity that showcases the magical wonder of the region.
Congrats to Molly, and thanks for the wonderful contribution!
To submit your overnighter, read the requirements on our Local Overnighter Project page and fill out this form. If selected, we’ll need a description of the route, highlights, details, logistical info, photos, and a GPX track.
