Maryhill Festival of Speed
The Columbia River cuts a gorge through the cascades and separates the state of Washington from Oregon. Goldendale is a small community a few minutes from the Columbia River. The town appears like it has more than 3760 inhabitants. It has a McDonalds and two grocery stores.
Maryhill Loops Road is about 10 minutes from Goldendale. The region was developed in the 19th century by Sam Hill, trying to create a Quaker community. The road was the first paved road in the state of Washington. The road is owned by the Maryhill Museum and was refurbished in 1998. Normally the road is gated and open to hikers and cyclists.
