We’re proud to bring this ride closer to Mary Bridge and the children we serve. The Charles L. Pack Experimental Forest is a conference center hidden within 4,300 acres of forestland at the foot of Mount Rainier. Pack Forest offers everything that’s great about summertime in the Pacific Northwest. Riders will have the option to stay in one of Pack Forest’s comfortable houses, dorms, or cabins. Our most adventurous riders will enjoy camping out among the stars on Pack Forest’s spacious campground. For 2017, accommodations will be booked upon ride registration on a first-come, first-served basis.

HPC is a strenuous mountain ride that climbs over Independence Pass, then winds past scenic Spirit Lake on the way to the Windy Ridge Viewpoint in the Mt. St. Helens National Monument area. The use of this pristine route was made possible by a special arrangement with the Gifford Pinchot National Forest and Mount St. Helens National Monument. This is a ride you don’t want to miss!

Come enjoy a beautiful ride in the country. Choose the 15, 30, 50 or 85-mile route, all on paved county roads. The 15 and 30-mile courses include a few easy hills, while the 50 and 85-mile courses have enough hills to make it challenging, including a few sustained climbs. While all of the routes are on paved roads, the majority of them are county roads, which vary in the smoothness of their surfaces.

What a hoot! We all wanted more. We even made a few bucks for the Junior rowing program. Our fundraiser was born.
