The Doherty Slide Section Of Oregon Route 140 Is White Knuckle Driving In Oregon That’s Not For The Faint Of Heart
If you’ve lived in Oregon for very long, you’ve likely experienced the traffic headaches of rush hour near Portland. Then there’s all the ongoing road construction, not to mention the tourists chugging along at 20 mph while hauling their huge RVs on Highway 101.
There might be some tricky traffic and terrible drivers out there, but luckily, the Beaver State only has a few roads that are terrifying in their own rights. There’s a stretch of Oregon Route 140 that’s white-knuckle driving. Check out the Doherty Slide!
