    Hey everyone. I am looking for a cross country route from east to west in the northern part of the United States. i’m planning on going from Michigan to Washington state, down to Oregon and back. I did the Transamerica trail last year and loved it but it was mostly the southern part of United States. I’d like to stick on back roads and a little bit of dirt maybe? GPS links, general info and help, I’m open to all of it.

    thanks

    The TAT has recently been modified so that it now runs from about the middle of Oregon nearly due east to at least the WI/MN border. Looks like plans are to continue it further east.

    Inmate Northern Traveler has also uploaded tracks for a similar route in a couple of the appropriate regional GPS Tracks subforums in Mapping and Navigation main forum

    Route 2 will take you clear thru from St. Ignace, MI to Seattle, WA. It's two lane, passes thru some fairly major cities for amenities and wasn't heavily traveled the last few times I've used it.
