November SUV Drive

This SUV drive is a leisurely late fall drive from Scappoose on the Columbia River to Astoria for Lunch. All roads are paved. We pass two coastal mountain ranges on curvy roads. The total driving distance is 126 miles, drive time is about 3 hours.

We start in Scappoose and follow the Scappoose -Vernonia Highway to cross the mountains over to Vernonia for a first rest stop at the City Lake Park. From there we follow Hwy 47 and then take Apiary Road over the mountains to Clatskanie for a second rest stop. The final leg leads from Clatskanie to Mist, through the ghost town of Jewell to the Youngs River. We follow the river on the south side to Astoria and end our ride at the Bridgewater Bistro for Lunch.
