At a Glance

In 1859, an American farmer shot a British pig rooting around in his potato patch. The Brits demanded compensation but were refused, thus sparking the “Pig War” over which winding ocean channel around the San Juans marked the jurisdictional boundary between British North America and the United States. You still have to choose sides but now the battle’s over which of San Juan Island’s narrowish, winding paved lines to follow. The DH has higher Twistiness through the forest, farm and seashore Scenery to British Camp but lower quality Pavement and Engineering on West Side Rd. TE-A, taking you out past American Camp to equally dramatic seaside vistas, is straighter but has more consistent P & E. But wherever your loyalties lie, routing is likely the only conflict you’ll face on mellow, siesta-like San Juan. Unless a speed tax collector sparks another war by rooting out compensation for radar-gunning you down on your patch.
