Westside Loop

Westside Road can be considered a good “locals” ride because of its low traffic, wide shoulders, long sight distance, and shady scenery. Start at the Rest Area at the Pelican Guard House where Westside Rd begins just off Hwy 140. The first 17 miles passes through diverse forest land. Several pull-offs are available including Crystal Springs Rest Area with nice vaulted toilets. Past the 17-mile marker you enter the Wood River Valley with wide-open grazing fields and extremely low traffic roads. You can grab a snack or sandwich at Joe’s Motel in Fort Klamath, at the half way point, before making your way back.
