The Sierra Cascades Bicycle Route runs roughly parallel to the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail along the Cascade Range and Sierra Nevada from the Canadian border to the Mexican border. This route is characterized by volcanoes, long stretches of forested countryside, busy towns, deserts, orchards and everything in between.

Section 2
After the Mt. Rainier National Park turn-off, the route runs south through many miles of national forest land on lightly-trafficked roads to the wind surfing area of the Columbia Gorge. The busy roads along the Columbia River will have tourist and recreational traffic. There are 11 miles of riding on the shoulders of I-84 due to the fact that there are no other roads to use along the river. At Hood River, Oregon the route turns south, circling around the eastern and southern flanks on Mt. Hood. From there you'll ride through another long stretch of national forest land until reaching the suburbs of Bend, on the dry side of the Cascades. Stock up here because there's one more long stretch of national forest land with its recreation opportunities, so expect more traffic on weekends. Crater Lake National Park is the endpoint of section 2, and again, expect heavier traffic on the road through the Park. The 53.2-mile Windigo Pass Alternate follows paved and gravel roads southwest of Bend. It has better scenery and less traffic. This section intersects the Lewis & Clark Bicycle Trail in Hood River and the TransAmerica Trail in Sisters, Oregon.
