Written Directionsstart 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 asgood 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 ).
Drive Enjoymenta 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.
Tourism Opportunities3 gas stations on the loop, few decent spots to eat.
