Pacific Northwest Backroad Adventures


Welcome to Pacific Northwest Backroad Adventures.

This site is dedicated to the people who like to get away from the cities and travel the backcountry roads of the Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon, Idaho, British Columbia). Whether the backroad consists of pavement, gravel, sand, dirt or a 4×4 trail, getting away from the main highways and enjoying the outdoors is what we love.

We’re not a 4×4 club, car club or a for-hire touring company. Our readers, however, do organize and lead group trips throughout the Pacific Northwest.

It doesn’t matter what you drive, it’s the destination that matters. Many of the areas featured on this site are accessible by most two wheel drive vehicles. Other areas will require a at least a high clearance vehicle, and sometimes a four wheel drive or dual-sport motorcycle, especially the more remote, mountainous destinations.

What sets us apart is that many of our readers use their vehicles as a means to access and explore remote areas of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Many of us combine our explorations with other outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, climbing, photography, mountain biking, fishing, hunting, wildlife watching, water sports, skiing, snowboarding, etc.

Our blog and forums are designed to be interactive. Comments on the posts are always welcome, as long as they are on-topic and family friendly. Be sure to sign up as a member so you can contribute your comments to the posts.

If you would like to attend an organized group run, or have trip reports, photographs, vehicle modifications, or anything related to the Pacific Northwest outdoors you would like to share, be sure to visit and participate in our forums. We’re always looking for new and fresh stories for our sites. It’s free to join and as always, we never will use, or will ever release your personal information for any marketing purposes.

See you on the backroads of the Pacific Northwest.
