Southeast of Hood River, the Surveyors Ridge Trail (#688) is one of the premier mountain bike trails in the region. From the primary trailhead off FS44, the singletrack and doubletrack rolls roughly 20 miles for 2000 feet down the ridge north to the intersection of SR 35 and FS17 (AKA Pinemont Drive). While generally downhill and well-maintained, it is physically demanding but the views and wildflowers are worthwhile. For a point-to-point, drop a car off 0.5 miles north of FS17 on SR35 at the Hamill Lumber Mill. Since the trail runs parallel to FS17, various length loops can be formed. Similarly, other alternate routes could be formed with the Dog River Trail (#675) and/or the Oak Creek Trail. The primary trailhead is located 26 miles south of Hood River off SR35 on FS44.

Overall, Surveyors Ridge Trail is the 3rd most popular mountain bike trail of all 56 mountain biking rides in Oregon. Several of the better mountain bike trails are nearby Surveyors Ridge Trail including Post Canyon, Jordan Creek Trails, Dog River Trail, Knebal Spring / Bottle Praire Trail, Larch Mountain Loop and Sahalie/Umbrella Falls TrailsFifteen Mile Creek / Cedar Run Trails.
