1. (n) Fine motorcycle road in southwest Washington running from the Columbia up toward the back of the Mt St Helens National Monument and mid-DH4 Randle - Yale. Blows straight as a blast of wind in the southern, lightly developed miles north of Carson, but begins to curl about a third of the way along. Remote middle third has possibly best continuous chain of esses in WA. Pavement and Engineering average except for new, wide-sweeping section on Curly Creek Rd east of TE-A Jct. Most of route in Gifford-Pinchot National Forest. Highly valued by motorcyclists for its combination of Twistiness and Remoteness.
2. (n) totally awesome ride, dude

 Riders Reviews:
"Another one of my local favorites. Great riding with little traffic and few LEOs. Do watch for deer and elk. NOTE: Gas is available at the Eagle Cliffs store in Northwoods once again after a long time without. Also food and beer etc. It's an oasis out in the woods if you're low on go juice" -Dean

"Sweet road with lots of linked esses. Better to start from Carson heading to Windy Ridge if you like uphill twisties. Watch out for US Forest STCs. The DH starts out with some pretty mild turns considering the 45mph limit but once you start ascending up the 20 - 30mph knee draggers, it's a little bit of heaven. The fact that it's connected to DH4 is a bonus." --Peter
