At a Glance

Think you’ve go what it takes to go to Yale? Frankly, if you’re into artsy fartsy stuff like Remoteness, Scenery and Character, you may want to think twice before enrolling your wheels. But if you want to pursue a serious course of study in the harder sciences of Twistiness, Pavement and Engineering, this DH is a great place to pick up credits. Although the road cribs the route of the Lewis River, you spend most of the ride with your nose buried in the trees. And even when the forest breaks for the frequent housing, there’s nothing much to look at. Which means you can dissect the road’s tightest corners — in the middle and just before the end — without any frivolous panoramic views distracting you. With its proximity to Portland, run-ins with townies are not unheard of, especially on weekends when they invade campus with their RVs and boat trailers. But as long as you stick to the three Rs (revving, riding, and wristmatic), you’ll graduate with honors.
