Sure! They will probably start sounding even better once I can trake off the waterproof back to the case. God damned Sun...where are you?

Let me know when you've got a day to ride, I'll take you guys on some localish roads you'll either love me or hate me for! <hint> you've seen the GPS tracks for some of them.

Reason #5 - Alsea Falls

If you haven't been on this road, get there. It's our own little Tail of the Dragon right here in Western Oregon. Ok...so maybe not THAT good...but it's a great road. Thanks to Rick, Dennis D & Spincycle for joining me that day.

Except I don't wear hats when riding. I'll let the squids do that.

I love this state.

You should consider these alternate routes near Alsea

1. Mary's peak Rd (goes up and back)
2. Alsea Falls Rd - go south at Alsea, turn left at S Fork Rd, follow the signs to Alsea Falls, keep going, you'll come out at Monroe
3. 5 Rivers - okay, it's east of Tidewater - turn there, go about 2 miles, stay left on Lobster Valley Rd back to Alsea. Or, you can turn onto NFD 35 before you get to Alsea, you can come out at the Alpha Farm near Deadwood on Hwy 36.


Note: for #3, I haven't been thru there in a number of years, it was all paved

Done, done & done.

1). We're actually still waiting for it to clear up this season. It's still buried under snow at the top. It's a great road, but poorly maintained road surface. It'd be really fun if they repaved it from top to bottom.
2). Check out the latest video, Reason #5, posted this morning...Alsea Falls is showcased. It's one of my favorite roads.
3). When I shot the Alsea Falls video...we had just come from Lobster Valley...then took that right onto Alsea Falls Road. It's all paved, but it's poorly maintained chip seal. You really can't go through there very fast. It's more of a scenic ride at this point. Great road though...I wish they'd repave it. I'll have to check that cut down to HWY 36 at some point. That's another one of my favorite roads.

I didn't see all your posts for some reason, so I see you're familiar with the area

You've done Lobster Valley all the way from Alsea to the 5 Rivers Cut off back to 34? Does it go any farther west?

The Deadwood cut off is easy to find if you're familiar with Lobster Valley - it goes up and over on some forest roads, ridges with great views. I haven't been down it in years, tho, so pavement?

From the north, follow it until it ends, go left, then right past Alpha Farm (well marked) You come out at the Deadwood Post Office

You may have been looking at one of the threads when cascaderider was merging them today. Yeah, I'm fairly familiar with the area. I'm still finding new roads though. Sunday was my first time on Lobster Valley/Five Rivers. We went down HWY 34 & took that left at Five Rivers. A couple more lefts & we ended up at Alsea Falls Road (about 8/10ths of a mile from Alsea & HWY 34. That's the entire road. Perhaps to be sure I know where I'm going, I'll head out on HWY 36 & take a right at the post office...that should show me where it lets out. I'm pretty sure I know the intersection...but it'd be nice to take it the other way to be sure. I think I've heard that it's not paved all the way through, although I haven't heard definitively.

If this is the road you're talking about, it's paved according to OregonMotorcyclist. Sounds like I have some exploring to do.

Make sure you get one that supports your habit. They're pretty hard to find, but definitely worth it.

Sorry for the late reply, yep all paved. I'll be leaving this Sunday for an about 2000 mile week long ride. So any follow me rides will have to be after then.

Nope, the one I'm talking about is farther east, right at the Post Office. You'll see a sign for Alpha Farm.

If you look at Googlemaps, it shows as Co 5140, Deadwood Creek Rd, right at the PO

The map has an error and shows the road as stopping just past Alpha Farm. It keeps going.

It's then shows as Lower Deadwood Creek Rd to the west (left) and DCR going rightish. There's a definite intersection there, go left. You go up LDCR about a mile and turn right onto NF 35/Brooks Rd. You'll know you're on the correct road because it switchbacks up and over, then down to Lobster Valley Rd. The name changes on the map, Preacher Creek Rd on the north end. Not sure you'll see any signs on this stretch of road

While it looks hard to follow on the map, it's the main road, so just keep going until you find the sign that says Lobster Valley and points right.

Again, I haven't been down it in years, unsure of the pavement quality or quantity.

Will do, I might make it to the bike night this Friday for a bit, but I think there is Super Moto at Macminville this Sunday if you are looking for a good ride with cheap entertainment. MacMinville is a good ride if you go up Kings valley and such.
