Sherman Pass is lovely, and the entire ride from Republic is very scenic. There are some broad views in both directions. But if you're uncomfortable riding in traffic, this might be a pucker fest. Logging trucks can be scary. 😳 This might be one for a weekend?
Seems my experience from 99 and 00 might be dated. Left from Republic early morning around the very beginning of June. Almost no traffic. The scariest incident happened during the second crossing. A local out for regular training ride snuck up behind me and said hello. I nearly jumped out of my skin because I had been riding in peace and quiet for so long. The first time there was a little snow while we were eating breakfast, then more descending the east slope. But I was treated to a moose sighting, which was a first for me.
