Lewiston to Leavenworth Advice Needed!

One day of a trip next summer is in an unfamiliar area. We are going from Lewiston, ID, to Leavenworth, WA. Using Google Maps, the route takes us on HWY 12 to 261 to 260 to 17 to 90 to 28, and totals about 240 miles. We ride anywhere from 240-300 in a day, so we are open to more miles.

If you know this area, and have better roads to recommend, I'd love to use that info to piece together the best route possible for that day.

Through Starbuck and Kalotus is good. Up 17 just past Othello turn east on Lee Road, follow it to the end and head north through the Columbia National Wildlife refuge. When you climb out of there turn north on Road H SE till it ends, then east on 262 (stop at Mike’s Place for a bite). Before the road climbs up the hill take a left on Frenchman Hills Road to stay east bound at the base of the hills. Take Road Q north to George. Idle Hour is the place to stop in Quincy, or take White Trail Road to bypass Quincy. The Rock in Rock Island. Turn off at Peshastin to take the north road into Leavenworth.

This way. Klinks on Williams Lake, good food. My niece Lorry runs the Rock and Gem store in Leavenworth. Seven miles of gravel at the top of the grade into Palisades but on a Vstrom should be no trouble, I have done it on my ZX-10, views are worth it.
