Written Directions

Written directions:

The road starts in Castle Rock (exit 49 off I-5). From there just take Route 504 - "Spirit Lake Highway" east and up into the end point at the Johnston Ridge observatory.

Scenery

If you like rides that give you views of lakes & rivers, this will be a great ride for you as you'll see Silver Lake, Coldwater Lake, Spirit Lake, a few rivers. And to top it all off, amazing views of Mt. St. Helens and the destruction it caused from the Johnston Ridge Observatory.

Road Quality

If you like sweepers this is the place for you. Miles and miles of sweepers on nearly perfect road surface. The last little stretch up to the observatory has some tighter turns too.

Roadside Amenities

You'll have access to a few places involving Mt. St. Helens and there are restaurants back in the town of Castle Rock, WA.

One of the best MC roads in WA. Great sweepers and scenery. I ride it often! Go mid-week or early in the day to beat the traffic. Stop at Parker's Restaurant in Castle Rock for an awesome burger, etc.

Amazing road, great views, absolutely stunning. Roads are almost all brand new, smooth and slightly banked corners. A must ride road!
