Maryhill Loops Tour
June 12 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm$95
Nestled among the foothills above the Columbia River in Southwestern Washington, the Maryhill Museum of Art has a little-known secret on its property: the private Maryhill Loops Road. (Note: See the location in map at the bottom of this page.) This road was the first macadam asphalt-paved road in the Pacific Northwest. The Maryhill Loops Road was an experimental road built by Good Roads promoter Sam Hill (what in the Sam Hill?). Laid in 1911 as the first asphalt road in the state, it achieved low grades with horseshoe curves. In 2.8 paved miles the road ascends 850 feet via a series of 25 turns, 8 of which are hairpins. Generally, the road is only open to pedestrians and bicyclists but on Saturday, June 12, the Oregon PCA will have private use of this road for a tour.
Cost is $95 per driver. Sharing of cars is allowed but each driver must register and pay individually. If sharing a car, drivers will be put into separate run groups (determined by car license plate numbers). Registration is open and will close on Wednesday, June 10 at 5:00 pm.
