This is a "Favorite Route". The route starts just north of the Willamette River and heads south into the Willamette Valley as far a McKenzie. The route is fairly flat, and in some locations, dead flat. Controls will be in Scio, Sweet Home, Mohawk Post, Harrisburg and Independance. You'll see a seven covered bridges, lots of farms, some forests and generally you're very close to the Willamette River.
Little things you shouldn't forget:
In and about Newberg. There is a 24-Hr Sharis and usual Fast Food fare. Pascale's Italian is a pizza and pasta favorite for years.
