Good roads near Shelton

  1. I might accompany a friend to The Ridge on 6/17-6/18, but I won't be riding at the track.

    Does anyone have suggestions on some fun local roads or places to see?

    The same friend also has my DH book, so I can't look them up until I get the book back.

    Thanks.
     
  2. What type of riding? how long the ride?
     
  3. sport touring. probably 3-4 hours at a time.

    Here is a fun route. Not so crooked that you will beat the center stand to death, but definitely not a snoozer.

    While you are in the neighborhood stop at El Ranchon in Elma for some good vittles.
     
  5. Good stuff Texasl! The road to Wynooche Dam becomes NF-22. Is that paved?

    From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wynoochee_Dam

    "The Donkey Creek Road (also Forest Service Development Rd 22) from Hwy 101 to the dam is currently closed for widening and paving of a 14 mile section of the road."

    Glad you like the route. Last time I checked the road was good all the way to the dam.

    When did they pave that 14-15 mile stretch to the dam? The last time I was on it was a few years ago, like 5 years, but it was gravel for a LONG way. I had fun on my Bandit, but it was not smooth.

    That stretch is from the coast road.
