In the continental US we have only one set of modern volcanoes – these are in the Cascade Arc, which extends from southwestern British Columbia through Washington and Oregon to Northern California, a distance of well over 700 miles.  Over the years, Timberline has visited these Cascade Range mountains in both hiking and cycling tours.  New for this year, we have created an ultimate Volcanoes cycling tour that hits four of the major mountains in just one week, for the passionate cyclist.  This challenging tour will get your legs burning and your lungs gulping as you ascend up to 7400 ft on the uphill days, and descend just as much on the downhill days. We will stay in the iconic mountain lodges high on the mountainside and welcome their fine dining experiences.  We will cross the Columbia River in the middle of the 80 mile gorge that drains the Rockies to the Pacific, and visit two national parks.  If you are looking for a true mountain tour – no whiners allowed, this is the one!
