Written Directions

On WA #17,Soap Lake going North, along Banks lake (area know as the scablands) to Grand Coulee, then up 3000' over the Disautel Pass to Omak on Wa 155

Scenery

South end runs along Soap Lake, then through a redish rock gorge right along the water all the way to Grand Coulee.You will pass Dry Falls,just south of Coulee City, sight of the once largest waterfall in NA! From grand Coulee you will go from the hot dry desert up 3000' into the forest and back down to the Okanagan heat again in Omak.

Drive Enjoyment

Great road,good pavement,not busy,some twisties on the pass, great scenery as you ride along the waters edge, lots of scenery! No hairy curves, just a nice ride that makes you think you are in Arizona for a while!

Tourism Opportunities

All you need! Grand Coulee has it all.

Interesting and extensive displays at the Grand Coulee Dam visitor's center. The route has various features showing the history of geology in that area. The view from the Dry Falls State Park is wonderful. Hard to imagine the water flow that once raged through that area.

I've done this ride many times and it never gets boring. The part through Banks Lake is awesome. I have a summer home 40 minutes NE of Omak near the little town of Wauconda. There are many roads in the area that will be appreciated by all riders but this one is up there on the list.
