Yep, the loop around to Detroit is paved but there are routes that have various number of miles that are graveled such as heading towards Timothy lake. Use google maps or google earth to check the routes.You meant E Faraday Rd out Estecada, right ? I've been there once for fishing. Nice road :wink:
This is sort of my daily commute.Anybody knows where the good place to ride in Portland area ? where can we find nice curves ?
I do know some places like NW Cornelius Pass Rd from Hillsboro to US 30 or NW Mc Namee Road to US 30. I used to take them to go to Sauvie Island. :mrgreen:
Not safe this time of year..... I rip down that road in my F150 like a mad man as I head for my favorite fishing holes.... Winter Steelhead is running now.Another would be up the Clackamas River and then take the backroad to Timothy Lake. There's a few miles that are gravel but I did it OK on Clyde. Then you can tool around at the Lake before heading out the Hwy 26 way and then up to Timberline Lodge for a quick detour. Hwy 26 is pretty nice for a main thoroughfare. Usually not too crowded but if it gets to you then you can turn at the West end of Sandy and head down towards the old Rosalyn lake area. It's a really nice ride.
