Two miles are straight up hill. Scenery is fantastic at 7:30 in the morning despite the clear cut. Once you reach George Washington's face it is great to look across the park to the ocean. Then up again the fire road at about a 25 grade incline. Once you reach the end of the road part you need to find the goat trail and travel up to the Poacher's cabin. That is as far as I could go. Mike Stanley from Mike's Bike in Cannon Beach promised an epic ride once you could find the crossing poiunt. But I never did. Even still the scenery made up for the tremendous climb. Look up Mike for a map and directions.
