Nestucca River Road + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
Pick up one end at Carlton, just southwest of Portland at SR 47. It starts as NW Meadowlake Rd and after about 11 miles veers to the left and becomes NW Nestucca Access Rd then Nestucca River Rd. Very twisty, absolutely no road signage indicating speeds, corners, etc so you need to be awake as there are recreational vehicles that use this road. About the mid-point right about the Elk Bend Recreation Site there is a 3 mile section of road that is unpaved (at least at the time of my ride in 2011. Road ends at junction of 101 at Beaver, there is a Shell station right at the junction.
This not so well known road travels through fairly dense forest for most of ride, does follow the river most of the way but not very visible.
No road signs and there is a short portion that is unpaved and significant potholes in places.
Nothing along way except one recreation area. Make sure you have a full tank before you start!
