The well-beaten path along the Columbia River north of Kettle Falls has
served as a passage between Washington and British Columbia for centuries.
Early travelers journeyed by foot and horseback, later by paddle-wheeler,
eventually by rail, and more recently, by sport-tourer. But this newest
technology presented a clear need for a well-paved and engineered bed of
pavement so that the growing numbers of motorcyclists would be able to ride
smoothly along the Columbia Riverís terraces. Thus, DH63 was born. Although
curves were considered an integral part of the success of this project, shoddy
construction has resulted in some treacherously straight sections in the
middle. But youíll still find excellent twisties in the limited, but stellar
sections at either end. Whether you take this route to connect with some of
BCís 85 Destination Highways, or plan to loop back to Hwy 20 via one of its
fine TEís, touch your tires to this DH. And beat a path to your rims.
"This is a great DH and loops into some good
TE rides. Excellent scenery and Kettle Falls is a hub for not only DH13, DH14
& DH65 but going south there are some really great TEs between Hwys 395 and 25. Heading south on 25 leads to lots of other DHs as well. Worth a trip!"-KH
