Post Extended Cascade Loop

I've been planning a trip around the Cascade Loop for Memorial Day weekend. This is the route I have so far: https://www.google.com/maps/dir/47...



Leaving Redmond, I'll head to 203 which I'll follow up to Monroe. Then to Woods Creek Rd and following the back roads through to Arlington. I'll take highway 530 to Rockport and then 20 across to Twisp. From there I would turn down 153 to 97 just in time to spend the night in Wenatchee.

The trip back I'm a little less prepared for, but would tentatively be taking 97 south to Ellensburg then 821/Canyon Rd. Using 12 for a quick jaunt would put me on 410 which I would take back across the pass.

Does anybody know if 410 will be clear to get back? I'm up for any route suggestions or advice you have to give. This will be my longest motorcycle trip yet, so looking forward to it and trying to avoid any preventable surprises!

This is the standard Cascade Loop: https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2588/4...d0380fae_b.jpg

Most people skip the islands, but I feel like they really make the ride into the loop.

410 over Chinook Pass is still closed and won't be open until after Memorial Day per the WSDOT.

I need to do that this summer. I've done it in pieces, but never all at once.

It's a great ride. I really want to do the BDR Loop this summer or next.

Long day but those are a handful of some of the better roads in WA. Great route!

Darn, could have been perfect timing if it had opened when 20 did! Thanks for the heads up. Guess I'll be using 2 for a quick way back home, then.
