Portland to Helsing Junction
 
Hey!

I'm looking to ride out to Helsing Junction (a CSA farm) tomorrow, a last minute decision, and I need to find a route to there from Portland. Helsing Junction is at;

12013 Independence Road
Rochester, WA, 98579.

I'm going to start figuring this out right now on my own, but figured I'd throw it out there in case anyone has ridden out in those parts and knows any good routes or any roads to avoid.

Any input is appreciated.

Thanks!

Tony

Tony, Michael Woolfe has detailed a route up thru Vancouver to Longview:

from Longview, hwy 411 up to Vader's is not bad as i recall - and i don't think there's another realistic option.

From Vader, Hwy 506 west to Ryderwood & continuing north thru Boisfort & Curtis is a really nice ride - & almost no traffic as i recall. you end up on Hwy 6 about 8 miles west of Chehalis. From here, it looks like there's a paved road north to Rochester: Bunker Creek Rd. / Ingalls Rd. / Independence Rd. But I've never ridden it, and the Benchmark Atlas is a little unreliable at times on their paved/unpaved distinction.

There is a good back way over to the Rochester on the south bank of the Chehalis.

ok, enjoy (and hydrate)!
