A nice alternative route that's all paved instead of taking major highways. You'll go through some open country to start, then transition to an oak-scrub forest, then to deep woods. Hardly any traffic and some great views of Mt Hood. If you're on a GS bike there are lots of side road exploration opportunities. There's also some nice camping spots.

Bakeoven : Shaniko Junction - Maupin

Good alternative route between Shaniko Junction and Maupin. Beats going on the highway with all the other traffic. When you start to drop down into Maupin there's some great corners. But be careful on some corners there can be gravel from the shoulder. The city park is a nice campsite too.

up the White Salmon River, down the Klickitat River
OR - HoodRiver/Wasco/Sher... > Oregon > United States > America
May 7, 2015 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

This is one of my favorites loops. You start in the Columbia River Gorge and end in the Gorge. It is amazing how quickly the scenery changes, since you move quickly through the climatic shift from Western Washington to Eastern Washington. The Gorge makes this possible without actually crossing over the Cascade Mountain Range, since the Gorge simply cuts right through them. You also get some of the changes going from the near-sea-level Columbia River at the bottom of the Gorge up through the hills to a large plateau of farms and ranches that have a dead-on view of Mt. Adams. When you get up there, you feel like you're in a completely different part of the Country, maybe Montana. Then it's on to the dry side of the State down switch-backs into and back out of the beautiful Klickitat River Canyon. From there you ride across an arid plain, then wind back down to the Klickitat River following it all the way back to the Columbia River Gorge. This route has all the twists and turns you can ask for, nice long straights, and beautiful scenery. But the most amazing part is the variation; it's like you've travelled a full day in less than three hours.

Some amazing corners on the climb from Rock Ck with enough corners all the way to keep your interest, nice section as you join 19. Some deer at dusk and they are the ones that just stand stupefied in a small group in the middle of the road. Until they dont. Low traffic. Good pavement. Gas at Rock Ck.

Forest Road 42 / Oregon Skyline Road
OR - HoodRiver/Wasco/Sher... > Oregon > United States > America
November 23, 2010 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

With good tarmac and wonderful views of Mount Hood, Forest Rd 42 is by far the best route between the Estacada-Detroit Scenic Byway and Hwy 26. Ride from west to east and enjoy the majesty of Mt. Hood.

The scenic beauty of Mt. Hood over Timothy Lake may be the most spectacular in all of Oregon - stop for lunch and soak it up!

OR 218 : Shaniko - Antelope

March 11, 2009 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

This eight-mile segment between Shaniko and Antelope includes a remarkable set of twisty corners near Antelope. A rural route in Oregons high desert, be on the lookout for animals, gravel, etc., though vehicular traffic tends to be low. Shaniko is a ghost town and Antelope is virtually the same. The nearest gas is in Maupin, 25 miles down Bakeoven Road (another excellent ride) from Shaniko.
