Target Keizer Station

About this event

NOTE: This event is for current BMW CCA members only. And is limited to 40 cars.

Linn County Covered Bridges Drive

June 13 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

It’s been a few years since we have visited the covered bridges of Linn County. So this covered bridges drive is a return to where it all started plus some added adventures in Marion County. The drive started in 2013 as a fall colors tour but has since evolved into two different events. The drive is more laid back but there are curvy sections mixed in with the picturesque settings. We will start with some curves near Turner then drive thru Jefferson on our way to Scio and Crabtree. We will take a break in Larwood Park and see the Larwood Bridge up close. Then we will shoot through the Richardson Gap on our way to Jordan. Then we’ll head out to Mehama and cross the Santiam River. On the way back we will avoid OR-22 and I-5 and instead see the quaint towns of Shaw, and Pratum. This is a great drive where we will cross 5 covered bridges. At times we will carve corners and other times will be a Sunday drive to soak up the pretty surroundings. This drive really does have it all!
And if you don’t mind a little wait, this is your chance to experience In-N-Out Burger for lunch after the Drive (its right next to the Target where we are starting/ending the Drive)!

We will meet around 9:00am at the Target in Keizer Station Shopping Center in Keizer, OR.  The Target is at 6450 Keizer Station Blvd. Keizer, OR 97303

We will have a MANDATORY Drivers’ meeting at 9:30am to explain the route and safety rules. We will head out shortly thereafter.
