US 14 from Dayton to Shell

  • This road is a long, steep and winding clumb up the face of the mountain to Burgess Junction. There are several hairpin turns and blind corners on this two-lane highway.

    From Burgess Junction down the other side of the mountian, the road is steep and has an 8-percent grade. Again there are several hairpin turns and blind corners. Through Shell Canyon, the road is extremely narrow.

    This road is not a good route for oversize or overlength loads. Unless you are experienced in mountain road driving, it is not advisable for 18-wheelers.

    For tourists, this is a wonderful drive with beautiful views, trees, and wildlilfe. If you are driving a motor home, please pay attention to the above information. Use lower gears and save the dangerous possibility of burning out your brakes.
