As you leave the town of Philomath, Or. (heading west) you take a left onto the Alsea HWY/Hwy 34, it is clearly marked and easy to find. The route ends in Waldport, Or. at Hwy 101, just south of the waldport bridge, cross hwy 101 at the signal and enjoy the nice rest area there.
The lovely farms of the Willamette valley slowly give way to the mountain forest of the Cascade Range. You will spend much of your ride along the Alsea River giving you plenty of opportunities to pull over and enjoy the many public areas.
The road is paved and in great condition as of summer 2013. Everything from nice straights and sweeping turns to the go-cart track a short section with many tight hairpins mostly well banked, yet not to challenging for a novice since it is generally a low traffic road and you can take your time.
There are no reliable gas stations from start to end so gas up befor you leave Corvallis/Phillomath. Many places to stop and relax by the river, well marked camping, picnicking areas.
