INTRO

A short and steep climb just south of Bend right up a miniature volcano.  This is the sister climb to downtown Bend's Pilot Butte, both short, spiral-shaped rides with scenic views of the Cascade Range to the west.

Road:
Excellent surface, and unique bright red pavement. Virtually no traffic and is very slow moving.

Parking:
There's a parking lot right in the park entrance off of Hwy 97. Since the climb is in a national monument a small fee is usually required 
Restrooms and drinking fountains are at the Lava Lands Visitor Center at the parking lot.

Along with being a hub for endurance athletes, Bend is one of the capitals of the craft beer world as well. Here are just a handful of the craft breweries that have headquarters in this town (seriously, there are more):

...you get the point. With climbs such as Mt. Bachelor and Crater Lake nearby, Bend is definitely worth traveling to with your bike. Here are some of the best hotels in the area to help plan your trip
