Driving Routes In Washington and Oregon
A friend and I are doing a road trip from Rossland BC down to Bend, Oregon. Will be travelling for about 5 days. Any suggestions on which routes to take down through Washington.
First time on this road trip so any suggestions would be great.
Follow this route in reverse ending up at Mosier, you wont likely find more curves in your life. The Lewis and clark trail is unbelievable. We just did this in early june and couldn't believe it. If you go to www.linesthe movie.com it shows some maps and tank cam videos of routes in Oregon as well. If you go to The sportbike website in the usa and look in the oregon section a guy named brad will respond with videos and all, he gave us the route we followed and sometimes it was so fabulous we just stopped and shook our heads.
West om I 84 to The Dalles
West of Dalles go south on to hiway 30 (windy hiway)
Hiway 30 west to Mosier and return to Dalles
South on 197 to Tygh Valley

follow this to Josephnorth to Enterprise, and Nth on Number 3 (Lewis and Clark Trail This is beyond compare, donot miss this stretch. FromThere we went to Coeur d'Alene because we were on our way
I'd suggest making your eastbound route through WA via Route 20 (Omak, Winthrop, Rainy Pass (viewpoint=wow!) and Diablo (viewpoint). You can figure from there how to make the coast. Maybe a different route home. I hear southeast WA is gorgeous.
