Written Directions

start in BINGEN, WA . HEAD west on HWY 14 . turn off towards WHITE SALMON ,WA on to hwy 141. Take hwy 141 north until you reach the town of BZ CORNER ,WA. from there, take the BZ-GLENWOOD HWY northeast (to do the route I'm describing, do not continue into TROUT LAKE, WA) towards Glenwood, WA. once you are on the bz-glenwood hwy, there will be some very nice curvy sections, along with some very fast sweepers, and a few long straights. once you get into GLENWOOD, WA, MAKE A RIGHT on Main St. This road will head out of town and change names to GLENWOOD HWY and later change names to GLENWOOD GOLDENDALE RD and take you down towards GOLDENDALE, WA (yet you will NOT make it all the way to GOLDENDALE). The road will come to a " T ",at this point, you need to take a right on to Rt 142 and take it into and through the town of KLICKITAT, WA. from klickitat on, you will have lots of good sweeping turns, some tight stuff, all the way down to hwy 14 and the end point of Lyle, WA. enjoy the ride !!

Scenery

"this is, in my opinion, one of the best rides in the entire NW as far as
good sporting rides go! sure there are others that have more turns
per mile (mt. st helens & hwy 18, shaniko to fossil) and there are
many rides with far better scenery, but, those rides generally have
far more traffic, tourist's,and revenue collectors ( A.K.A. POLICE ).": myspace.com/lade1721.

Decent scenery in places , a few great views ( if you can stop in such a fun section ,you'll see ).

Road Quality

a very nice mix of very fast sweeping turns, with a few long straights, tight twisty sections, and lots of good switch backs. pavement quality gets a little rough at times, but does smooth back out. there are areas of this ride that are open range, which means, for those of you not familiar with the term, that there could be cows (or other animals) on the road as they are not penned in by fences. I've never seen any, but that's not saying they aren't there.

Roadside Amenities

3 gas stations on the loop, few decent spots to eat.

Beautiful ride with ample curves. Almost no traffic (hwy 141 might have some). Nice views of My Adams and the Klickitat river river and canyon.

This ride is beautiful and an quick trip to the stonehenge replica on the Columbia River, or the Mary Hill Winery. I don't write reviews much but I figured this was such a great ride that I would share with everyone.

Fantastic road. Perfect blend of tight turns and mild sweepers along the Klickitat river. Not too heavily traveled, no gravel, plenty of opportunities to pass slower vehicles.

One of, if not the best local rides for those of us that live in the Vancouver, WA area when a trip out the Columbia River Gorge oh WA Hwy 14 is included. I recommend taking this in the reverse of the direction described i.e. starting in Lyle, WA and ending in Bingen, WA as the views of Mt. Adams are better going that direction.

BZ Corner to Glenwood is one of my all-time favorite roads. A nice variation of this route is to take the Klickitat Appleton Road towards Appleton. From Appleton go south on Canyon Road to Old Hwy 8. From there go East or West (better) to get back onto Hwy 14.

We've ridden this route many times and it's always beautiful. HOWEVER, today the tar snakes in the little town of Klickitat were scary bad. BE CAREFUL.
