Cycling from Pomeroy to Colfax
« on: July 04, 2016, 10:38:19 pm »
Hi, I see on the Washington State bicycle map that there are bike routes between Pomeroy and Colfax by way of Almota. Does someone have a detailed route description ? Thanks. Susanne

I have done parts of this route in 1991 on a road bike.  We went from Pomeroy to Gould City and then west to Central Ferry.  We found these back roads to be fantastic cycling.  We learned about this route by asking locals for ideas that were off the main highways. I now use Benchmark Maps "Washington Road and Recreation Atlas".  The solid lines are paved, but it's good to ask locally about their accuracy.  I have found only very few errors.  I highly recommend these back roads for this part of WA.  You can ride for a long time between cars.  go for it and you'll have great adventure. BTW, carry water, esp in summer!
May the wind be at your back!
