Last day of a 4 day ride starts on the scenic Oregon coast and features the scenery of Canon Beach, Cape Disapointment and then following the old Hwy 101 along the Hood canal before reaching Port Townsend and Whidbey Island.
Scenic 101 Hwy
The stretch between Florence and Yachats is considered one of the more attractive segments of this highway. There are at least 86 Oregon state parks along the Pacific coast, including the Heceta Head Lighthouse. There are also many scenic bridges along the Oregon Coast that carry US 101, such as the Yaquina Bay Bridge in Newport. Because US 101 forms the main street of almost all of the coastal towns in Oregon (with the exception of Cannon Beach, Pacific City and a few others), traffic is often congested and slow in the summer months. The highway crosses the mouth of the Columbia River over the four-mile-long (6.4 km) Astoria-Megler Bridge at Astoria into Washington, and follows the Columbia downstream to Ilwaco.
