ROUTE 138 TO CRATER LAKE
DISTANCE: 228 miles
TIME: 5 hours
Route 138 runs alongside the Umpqua River, beside Diamond Lake and leads to Crater Lake National Park, making it one of the best motorcycle roads in Oregon. The loop around the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway is a fantastic loop around this incredible natural wonder with astounding views. The scale of the lake is difficult to wrap your head around, you have to see it in person. At over 6,000 feet of elevation, the lake itself is nearly 2,000 feet deep. It's one of the clearest, cleanest, and deepest bodies of water in the world. Be aware, however, that even in June there may be significant amounts of snow.
THE DEVIL'S TAIL
DISTANCE: 70 miles
TIME: 1.5 hours
Located on the border of Oregon and Idaho, Hells Canyon is the deepest canyon in North America - including the Grand Canyon. This motorcycle ride in Oregon lies between Baker City and Oxbow. It's a challenging ride with an abundance of curves and elevation changes. The Devil's Tail is a nickname bestowed by 2008 rally attendees on a 22-mile (35 km) twisty segment of the road as a homage to the "Tail of the Dragon". Ride this carefully and enjoy Eastern Oregon's scenery.
DISTANCE: 56 miles
TIME: 1 hour
This north/south 2-lane OR motorcycle ride has gorgeous scenery along the Snake River, and meanders through high mountain farm land. Enjoy the deep river gorges on the northern portion of this road. There's some great tight curves in the Grande Ronde area. Riding south on this route leads to the serene Wallowa Lake State Park.
OREGON COAST HIGHWAY
DISTANCE: 167 miles
TIME: 4 hours
Nothing beats riding on the coast of the Pacific on a sunny day. The Oregon Coast Highway is a fun ride with great ocean scenery. This route will take you high above the ocean but also brings you right along the beaches, with a mix of heavily forested sections through the evergreens. Overall, it's a great curvy road with awesome views!
Most of Route 101 will get a fair bit of traffic, but our favorite part of this stretch is between Crescent City, CA and Coos Bay, OR. The scenery is just as spectacular but there's a lot less traffic.
