Fall Motorcycle Weekend Getaways Washington

fall motorcycle weekend getaways

Fall motorcycle weekend getaways are the best way to see Mother Nature in all her glory. If you follow our Travels with Harley blog, you will know that Jim doesn’t like motorcycle camping, at all…but we still enjoy fall motorcycle weekend getaways, as long as we stay in a nice hotel.

Of course, I always read the reviews before we book our fall motorcycle weekend getaways, but sometimes the reviews aren’t always accurate, fortunately, that hasn’t happened too often.

This week we’re heading to the state of Washington for some spectacular colors, a comfortable place to lay our heads and, this really goes without saying, but I will anyway, great food!

WA Forest Road 25

Highway 20 and the North Cascades is where you will find plenty of reminders that fall is defiantly in the air. The 83.3-mile ride is full of some tight corners, a section of sweepers, and some nice curves that will almost leave you as breathless as the amazing scenery. You’ll ride through the North Cascades National Park where you will spot lots of deer. You can stay at Leavenworth, the Bavarian Village Theme Town. October is a great month as the entire town is celebrating Oktoberfest with two more weekends left to pull out your lederhosen.

WA Forest Road 25

Claimed to be the, “Overlooked gem,” for fall motorcycle weekend getaways, the WA Forest Road 25 near Mt. St. Helens is touted as one of the best in Washington State. It’s got lots of curves though, which could be one of the reasons that casual weekend motorcycle riders often overlook it. There are lots of campgrounds in the area, but check the list as some are open all year round, and some aren’t. Of course, Jim and I chose to stay at the Cowlitz River Lodge, which is a little over 13 and a half miles outside of Randle in Packwood. Just off the US 12, it’s a great place to stay the night, especially if you want to hike the Mt. Rainier Trails the next day.

SR15 Aberdeen

The SR15 Aberdeen will give you both coastal and spectacular views of autumn in all its glory. The 47.2-mile ride is quite touristy in the north, but the sea views and the sweeping curves are worth it. Tokeland is a little over halfway and has some great places to relax after a hard day of riding.

Although we have yet to enjoy the home style cooking, the Tokeland Hotel and Restaurant is on our list of fall motorcycle weekend getaways. It used to be a Victorian era farmhouse and has been converted into a hotel and restaurant about a mile from the Port of Willapa Harbor and the marina. It’s actually the oldest resort hotel in Washington first becoming the Kindred Inn in 1889.
