Fall Colors Tour
October 28, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm| Free
Summer may be over but our driving season is not! We have one more epic tour this month – our popular Fall Colors Tour to The Dalles. Tour Meister Tom has put together an exciting route with a great balance of technical twisties, roller-coaster sweepers, and a mellow section on the way to The Dalles to keep us all entertained. The route will take us through heavily wooded and dark canyons and back out to high desert plains with views for miles.
Stage 1 of 3 starts in Troutdale, with the first rest stop about an hour and half into the tour in Cascade Locks. Plan ahead and take advantage of the restrooms at the driver’s meeting, you will be glad you did.
After a brief leg-stretch and pit-stop, we will begin Stage 2 out east on Highway 84 to Mosier, where we will head up to the top of the ridge and traverse the sweeping backroads back down into the valley before we roll into The Dalles for lunch. Clock Tower Ales will be our location this year and we have the large meeting room reserved and ready for our group. Individual checks will be available, and an 18% gratuity will be added to your bill.
The tour officially concludes following lunch, and those interested in completing Stage 3 back to Mosier, before heading back west on Highway 84, will be doing so self-guided. This is a great, easy-to-follow 14 mile stage with the most incredible views of the gorge, at least for those not watching the road!
Join us for our final tour of the year!
Update: Bring $6 cash for toll bridge!
