Coast Range Gravel Adventure 2018

3 days of gorgeous fall riding on old logging roads through the coast range

Start Date: 
Saturday, October 20, 2018
Number of Days: 
Total Miles: 

I put a message out on Facebook hoping to get people to join me on a coast loop following the C2C over and the Yachats River valley back. It was a success.

We had 9 riders start out plus Karen drove my van for the first 2 days. 3 Riders just did a day ride, 2 riders rode for 2 days, and 4 of us rode all 4 days.

We had beautiful sunny weather except right on the coast where it was foggy. We did not get to camp the 3rd night because Salmonberry CG closed due to a water problem. We did get to ride a new to us road, FS 3412 which parallels highway 34 from Five Rivers Road to Missouri Bend, getting us off the highway and on to gravel, and cutting 4 miles off of the route.

This isn't entirely accurate. We did not ride north from Ona Beach, and we drove home from Salmonberry campground.
