Jump to last reply

Hi Guys,
We are planning a 10 day road trip from SFO bay area to Seattle and back. We have already done couple of road trips to see OR coast, CA coast, redwoods etc. The focus of te this trip is going to be Columbia River gorge, Mt St.Helens/Mt Rainier and Olympic National Park ( primarily the Port angeles side- Hurricane ridge area). This is what I came up with for itinerary.

Day 1: East SF Bay area to Troutdale- 670 miles, 10 hours
Reach Troutdale and stay @ McMenamins, Edge Field

Day 2: Explore & Stay Columbia River Gorge and Mt.Hood area. Stay the night Mcmenamins.

Day 3: Explore little bit more Columbia River Gorge and Drive to Mount St.Helen ( 1hr 40 mins), 66 Miles, Spend the day in Mt.St.Helen and drive to Mt.Rainier ( 3 hours, 115 miles), Stay @ Mt.Rainier National Park ( Accomodations ? Paradise Inn ?)

Day 4: Explore Mt.Rainier, Stay @ Paradise Inn ?

Day 5: Leave Mt.Rainier, Head to Port Angeles
Stay in Olympic Lodge, Port Angeles (3-4 hrs, 176 miles).

Day 6: Stay in Olympic Lodge, Port Angeles, Visit Hurricane Ridge Olympic National park

Day 7: Stay in Olympic Lodge, Port Angeles, Visit Olympic National park

Day 8: Leave Port Angeles, head to Seattle ( 2-3 hours), 173 miles.
Explore and stay in Seattle

Day 9: Explore Seattle and head to Portland 2-3 hours. Stay in Portland

Day 10: Leave Portland and head home 9-10 hrs

Does this look doable ? I would appreciate any tips, recommendations on places to stay and see.

Thanks much,
YNP girl
