Sparks Lake Recreation Site to Sparks Lake, Deschutes County, OR, USA
Little Lava Campground to Elk Devils Trail #12
Olympic Discovery Trail complete
This is my fourth time doing this traverse on bike, and my second time strictly following the ODT. Sections are not all finished, and anybody considering this route should be aware of the primitive trail conditions on the north shore of Lake Crescent. Road tires will not do well here, I travel with reinforced tires and plenty of spares - both times through I've needed to walk the bike for a considerable distance. It's worth the extra effort, bypassing 101 for any length of time is a relief and the grade leaving the lake by trail is a fraction of that on the highway.
