At a Glance

With the northern part of the Cascade Loop grabbing all the acclaim, this quiet, underused highway, hidden in the trees on the south side of the Skagit River, lies mostly forgotten and ignored. But mile for mile itís a far better warm-up or cool-down for DH1 Rockport - Winthrop than the straight west end of Hwy 20, where the only excitement youíll find comes courtesy of Concreteís predatory speed tax collectors. Whether itís a traffic-free cruise under a semi-canopy of trees along a surging river that appeals or just that youíd rather avoid a contribution to Cement Cityís number one industry, time here is well spent. There are some inevitable houses and farms in the fertile flatlands near Sedro Woolley, but they diminish as you ride east. Then itís mainly trees, water and curves.
