Hood Loop celebrates Mt. Hood and the Cascade Range in its six-mile

circumference of Portland. The mountain form is ubiquitous in the bike

path’s design, expressed in its ground cover pattern, separation from

the road, and art that energeizes adjacent facades. The form stretches,

peaks and subsides as the path navigates neighborhoods with distinctly

different qualities. With the city’s nearby natural splendor in focus, Hood

Loop not only encourages a sense of pride for residents in their city and

region, but reminds them of the places they’re helping to

protect by moving from four wheels to two.
