Bike the Gorge Ride Details

We’re excited to host you for your e-bike ride in the Gorge! If you have any questions about the suggested route below or other ride options, feel free to email us at or ask us for advice when you check in.

P.S. Don’t forget to read and sign our rental agreement before your arrive! The confirmation email you received includes a custom link to our rental agreement and liability waiver. Please share that link with everyone in your group and ask them to complete it ahead of time so there aren’t any delays getting you out on the road.

Your ride details

Our recommended route follows the Historic Highway State Trail to a series of spectacular waterfalls and one of the best swimming holes in the Gorge.

  • If you booked a half-day or full-day rental, you will have time to complete the full 22-mile roundtrip ride and explore the waterfalls along the way.
  • If you booked a two-hour rental, you will need to choose between hiking to Emerald Falls or riding further along the state trail.

Distance: 10 to 22 miles roundtrip

Directions: Our rental bikes are equipped with adjustable phone mounts, which give you the option of pulling up Google Maps and following these directions as you go.

Detailed Directions With Photos

What to do if you need assistance: Give us a call at 541-645-5721 if you have any problems with your e-bike or questions about directions, extending your rental, etc. For medical emergencies, please call 911.

Reminder: Bikes must be locked up whenever you’re not riding them. A bike lock is included in your rental, and you will receive the lock code at check-in.

Alternative ride routes: You are welcome to choose a different route for your ride, as long as the bikes stay on paved roads and trails and are returned on time. Another popular option is a ride across Bridge of the Gods to Stevenson, Washington, but due to the busier car traffic, we only recommend this route for experienced bike riders.

After your ride

Your Bike the Gorge host will usually be there to meet you at the end of your ride, but occasionally they get called away. If that’s the case, please lock your bike to door of our shipping container and text a photo of the secured bikes to 541-645-5721.
