Maryhill Loops Tour – Participant/Volunteer ONLY Event
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). Refunds will be offered up until the day of the event.
Registration will open on Thursday, May 6 at 7:00pm and close on Wednesday, June 10 at 5pm. We cannot allow any changes after that date. You can cancel.
