Points of Interest

Start your drive on Rte. 219 here in Newberg. You will follow it for several miles before taking the more scenic route to Hillsboro over the Chehelam Hills.

2. Bald Peak State Park

You will have great views from here over the Tualatin Valley. This is the highpoint at 1,629 feet of the Chehelam Mountains. There are picnic tables to eat at and a nice Douglas Fir Woodland surrounding the summit. I've included a photo here of what Bald Peak looks like from the valley.

3. Downtown Hillsboro

Your end point of the drive. Feel free to jump on Rte. 8 from here east towards Beaverton or continue north to hit up with Rte. 26. Or stay a bit and check out the nice town of Hillsboro.
