At a Glance

The Road Less Traveled can be an elusive find, at least if asphalt is a prerequisite. So itís time to get off your meditation cushion and onto the Corbin when you find a highway posting these kind of TIRES numbers with virtually no traffic. Turning off at one lonely intersection of Hwy 101 and reconnecting at another, this parallel routeís main reason for being is to provide access to that spiritual retreat otherwise known as the Olympic Correctional Center. With open straights and long, gentle curves at the northern end providing fine views of the mountains and ridges of Olympic National Park and tight twisties dominating the thickly treed south, this quiet road strikes a harmonious balance. While we canít guarantee youíll discover your inner self here, you shouldnít discover many discordant speed tax collectors, since this road is under the care of the mellow National Forest Service. Everyone breathe together now: Intake. Exhaust. Intake. Exhaust.

 

 
Riders Reviews:
"This is a nice alternative to the normal routing up the peninsula. Adjacent to the correctional facilities, take a close look at the mile marker signs. They are marked in 1/2 mile increments so they can more closely note where the prisoners take off into the brush. Conversation with a local a week ago indicated that the escapees tend to stay on the trails after they leave the highway so they are easy to find!" --Tim Bowman
