The Vernonia Run will begin at 9:30 at Peterkort Square (11070 SW Barnes Road, Portland – it’s near Providence-St. Vincent Hospital).  We’ll head to Vernonia via NW Skyline Blvd., Hwy 30 and the made-for-Miatas Scapoose-Vernonia Road.  The drive will be about 50 miles long, and will end with lunch at Vernonia’s Black Iron Grill.  We’ll part company after lunch –

However, there are some great drives that start in Vernonia if your spirit moves – including,

·        North from Vernonia on HWY 47 leads you to Clatskanie via some fabulous twisties

·        South from V-Town to Timber and HWY 6 there are tons more great curves

·        North and west toward Jewell and Astoria via HWY’s 47 and 202 is a world-class road that takes you past the Jewell Elk-viewing area and ultimately to Astoria.

By way of warning – as as near as I can tell there’s no source of coffee or gasoline at the start, so plan ahead to address any such needs --
