Ride Spokane to Dayton

Total Miles: 175 | Approximately 3 Hours

Explore eastern Evergreen State cities with this motorcycle ride along the Idaho border. Roar through Lewis and Clark country with stops along the way in Colfax and Clarkston.

Start your eastern Washington ride in Spokane, neighboring Eastern Washington University, Mt. Spokane Ski Area, and the community of Liberty Lake.

Be sure to check out Riverfront Park and get a snapshot of the Great Northern clock tower, or browse area cultural sites like the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture, Spokane Valley Mall, and – only if you’re ending the ride in Spokane Valley – the NoLi Brewhouse.

Gear up at Lilac City’s Lone Wolf Harley-Davidson, and head south on U.S. Highway 195. You’ll pass scenic picnic spots along the way like James T. Slavin Conservation Area, Tumbull National Wildlife Refuge, and Steptoe Butte State Park.

About 60 miles south of Spokane is Colfax – a quirky town home to must-sees like the Codger Pole, the historic Perkins House, and events like Concrete River Days, the Palouse Empire Fair, and Autumn Harvest Hullabaloo.

Stretch your legs with a trek down the three-mile Colfax Trail, or just take a break from the saddles at McDonald Park.

About 15 miles southeast of Colfax is Pullman, a lively college town home to Washington State University. Stop for lunch, or keep heading south about 30 miles to Clarkston – the trail dipping riders a bit into Lewiston in western Idaho.

Set at the confluence of the Snake River and Clearwater River, Colfax features scenic spots like Beachview Park and Hells Gate State Park.

From Colfax, head west on U.S. 12 – trailing the Snake River for a bit and passing Chief Timothy State Park – about 70 miles until you reach Dayton.

A historic town, Dayton features the Dayton Historic Depot and the Palus Artifact Museum – plus Lewis and Clark attractions like Sacagawea & Baby Pomp monument, Flour Mill Park, and the Lewis & Clark Trail State Park.
