TRAVEL THE WEST END of the Historic Highway - Includes historic Troutdale, Tad's Chicken 'n Dumplings, the Sandy Gorge, Stark Street Bridge, historic Springdale, Corbett, the historic Edgefield Manor & more...

These days, 2 sections of the old highway remain, connected by a short stretch of I84.

The 1st section can start in Troutdale instead of Corbett, on request. Troutdale embraces the road like other towns embrace local celebrities. 

4 possible stops in Troutdale include: (5-6 hour tour required otherwise it would just be a drive along route 30)

  • Historic Edgefield Manor (Milepost 0 on the Old Highway. A destination resort built in 1911 as the county poor farm and is a National Historic Landmark)

  • This burb of 16,000 is home to the start point of the King of Roads and the King of Roads Exhibit at the Troutdale Historical Society's Barn Exhibit Hall; a combination of photos, memorabilia documenting the highway's history and stories of the road builders. Knowing the story adds appeal to the drive. Visionaries Sam Hill & Samuel Lancaster had studied highways along the Rhine River in Europe, then brought the same style and techniques (stone arch guardrails, elegant bridges, and wide, sweeping turns to tame the steep climbs) to the road along the Gorge. "It's hard to imagine a road being built with such artistry today.", local historian Len Otto says. http://www.kingofroads.org

  • 1907 Rail Depot

  • 1900 Harlow House

From Troutdale, historic route 30 follows the quiet Sandy River and Gorge and passes Tad's Chicken 'n Dumplings and Shirley's Tippy Canoe Bar & Grill-a riverside restaurant that was once featured on the Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives for its large and messy sloppy joes. From there the road passes the Stark Street Bridge and Springdale and climbs to the Gorge's rim and one of the loftiest views of the Gorge at Chanticleer Point in Corbett.
