Hood River Doods WENT East Saturday

A couple of us are taking off Saturday about 10-11am (after TP wakes up) & heading East up Klickitat River Road to Wahkiacus, Centerville, Goldendale, Bickleton, etc. We'll see how far we get. I might just keep going East forever, until reality reigns me in.

We'll do a little bit of gravel if the snow's not piled on it, but mostly slab.

JOIN US Mid Columbia ADVers! (or PDX ADVers?)

I might be relocating to Stevenson at the end of the month. Such great riding down that way.

Last month I planned riding from Yakima to White Salmon via White Swan, Signal Peak Rd, Klickitat River Rd, Glenwood, etc., but got turned back by signage at the Res.. Is that route legally passable?

Have a great ride.

If you don't mind a $125 ticket for Tresspassing on Reservation land .

Guess how I know? From the Glennwood side, after riding on the "Mt. Adams Hiway" for many miles, I came to the Reservation border. Old abandoned Guard Station and Cattle Guard. Big Sign said "No Alcahol, No Paraphenalia, No Marijuana". No signs said "White boy, stay out", so.........

Big Blue Tahoe with lights taught me different. KILLER ride. Signal Peak Lookout was EXCELLENT view that day. Almost worth the ticket. WAS worth it. Would NOT do it again tho.

TourPros told me you can purchase a permit in Toppinish at Yakima HQ.
When in Stevenson, LET'S RIDE!

We're headed up from Lyle to Klickitat and near Wahkiacus we're headed East on Gravel over the bridge. Orange Adventure. Black Shadow.

If'n I was you I'd avoid I-84 and do WA-14 both ways. Freeways are for when you're in a hurry. Or at least do old Hwy 30 from Ainsworth.

Come to HR with that Husky sometime.

EDIT: I see you've bailed on your ride plan Squirrels. You'll be sorry. That road-loop will call for you and haunt you 'til you ride it.
