Route Description: Washington USBR 81

USBR 81 begins on a paved river’s edge bike path in the town of Asotin and ends at the northern border of Whitman County near the town of Tekoa. It passes through the “wonderfully mesmerizing rolling wheat fields of the Palouse, some of the most productive farmland in the nation,” connecting the communities of Farmington, Garfield, Palouse, Pullman, and Clarkston. Pullman is a medium sized city with over 35,000 residents and home to Washington State University. Clarkston has over 7,000 residents, though Clarkston and Lewiston, Idaho function as a twin-city pair with a combined population of about 40,000.

From Clarkston, the route follows the Snake River and Lewis & Clark’s footprints before climbing out of the ancient river canyon to just south of Pullman. Using a mix of county and state roads, the route continues close to Washington’s eastern border as it passes through thousands of acres of rolling fields color-coded by season: vivid greens in the spring, bright yellow when the canola blooms in June and amber waves as the grain ripens in autumn.
