Better highway HWY 6 or HWY 23?

hi we are thinking of going a little further south today from Manzanita, but are staying in Portland tonight. Which is the easiest drive? Thanks much!

You probably mean 26. If it were me I'd take Hwy 6 but both should be a breeze considering you'll be going against traffic.

Yeah, I'd definitely take 6 because there will be thousands of PDXers speeding west on 26 trying to get to Seaside/Cannon Beach. Even Al Gore got a ticket there once.

Yep, hwy 6, the road less traveled, but I think more scenic. Couple nice waterfalls, particularly Fern Rock Creek, which is just past milepost 29. Look for a large gravel pullout-parking area. Then, if you've got lots of time, take a swim in the pool at Buck Snort, up the forest service road a ways from Jones Creek.
