I am planning a spring trip from central Idaho to southern Oregon/northern CA to see the giant redwoods. My simple trip plan is to first travel west to Portland. Then down the Cascades, crossing several paved passes as I work my way south to Brookings. I have the Butler maps but I appreciate the advice of local experienced riders. Several years ago I took a similar trip with the objective of crossing the continental divide as many times as possible while traveling from Mexico to Canada. I crossed 38 times. I want to get to know the Cascades by doing the same type of ride. Thank you. Ride safe.
