Timothy Lake Cutoff + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
Driving from Estacada, follow Highway 224 past the Ranger Station near the first turnoff to Timothy Lake. Stay on 224 for APPROX another 25 miles. Turn North on NF42. This will take you over a pass that has one of the finest National Forest roads you will ever find.
Creek running along road. Single lane PAVED! with plenty of turnouts for traffic in both directions. Driving South to North you will get a great view of Mt. Hood as you come around several of the corners. Spectacular!
Lots of lower speed twisties but a road surface like glass. It will seem like you are riding through a beautiful park.
NONE! There is no gas between Estacada and Detroit. No food service either. Start with a full tank from Estacada, Detroit, Portland, or Hood River.
This is probably closed in the winter. Watch out of deer and other large animals. Just a decent cruise through the National Forest.
