Maryhill Loops Tour – Participant ONLY Event
July 18 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm$75
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, July 18th, the Oregon PCA will have private use of this road for a tour. This event was a big success last year!
Cost is $75 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. Refunds will be offered up until the day of the event.
Registration will open on Wednesday, July 1 at 9:00 am. Please note, this event is pending insurance from National PCA. If insurance is not issued, the event will cancel and registrations will be refunded.
Please note that due to Covid-19 issues, this is a participant ONLY event. No spectators are allowed. The number of drivers we can allow is very limited.
When you are not driving, you will have to work. We need spotters, starters, road cleaners and other various roles. You must attend all day 9am – 5pm, so please plan accordingly. Please note: No pets or children under 18 allowed.
