West Cascade Scenic Byway Drive

August 3 @ 8:00 am - 12:30 pm

Free

Come join us for a “kool” wilderness drive through the Clackamas, Willamette, and Mt Hood National Forests.  The 95-mile journey begins in Oregon City and follows the Clackamas River venturing through the Riverside Fire Burns then miles of paved narrow forest and riverside roads passing Breitenbush Hot Springs and then back to “civilization” in Detroit, Oregon for a picnic and food carts lunch.  The drive will finish in Detroit, providing opportunities for afternoon adventures if you want.  We have two rest stops planned: the first includes a flush toilet and the second is a pit toilet.

This tour will start with 3 groups of 15 cars, but since we keep selling out, please sign up for waiting list once all groups are full. If you can Lead or Sweep a group, please sign up for that during registration as this will allow for inclusion and participation of more members. The route allows for additional groups if we have more leads and sweeps.

Plan to bring a picnic lunch or patronize one of multiple food carts available for outdoor lunch since Detroit is still rebuilding from the 2020 wildfires.

Please arrive by 8:00am to sign waivers and mingle. We will have a participant’s meeting at 8:15am. The groups will leave in increments of 15 minutes after 8:30am.

Registration will open on Thursday, July 4 at 7:00pm. Please register by car.
