5 Star Route / Ridden and Reviewed by Captain ‘O’
This is a 5 Star route, but we have yet to have a great day for pictures. The Dirty Freehub team has been visiting the Winthrop area since the early 1990’s when Seattle was home. The scenery in the North Cascades is absolutely breathtaking!
For a bit more on the area and the road check out this link by the National Forest Service and this link by Dangerous Roads. There are a number of great write ups on the Internet about this route, one of the best is by the guys at Our Mother the Mountain.
