Indian Ford Road paved bicycle route
Length: 19 miles Surface: Paved (chip sealed) road with 4’ shoulder on Camp Polk Rd. Moderate but often fast traffic on Camp Polk Rd and light traffic on Indian Ford Rd.
Description: This is a relatively flat out-and-back ride with a few rollers along a beautiful back road lined with Ponderosa pines and open fields and with many lovely views of the Sisters Mountains. Take N Locust / Camp Polk Road out of Sisters turning left (west) onto Indian Ford and out to NF-11, returning the same way. A 15 mile variation with a fast return would be to come back on Hwy 20 (turn left onto NF-11 for 0.1 mile, then left onto the highway), which now has extremely smooth and wide shoulders but horrendous traffic.
Access: Start at Sisters Village Green – take Fir St. north, right on Hood Ave, right on Hwy 20 and then an immediate left (north) onto Locust St, which becomes Camp Polk road at the city limits.
