Scenic Driving Tours in Washington
Moses Lake to Ritzville via Rosenoff Road Overview

When was the last time you stood looking at a field of wheat that extends to the horizon?  A drive on Rosenoff Road offers this simple pleasure.  The road makes a nice alternate route for a small part of I-90 in Washington.  Those who are familiar with the run between Seattle and Spokane, and have time on their hands to try something different, will appreciate the diversion.  In addition, depending on which direction you are traveling, the city parks in Moses Lake or Ritzville offer pleasant lunch or rest stops. 


The Route
Located in southeast Washington, Rosenoff Road runs roughly parallel to I-90, about one to three miles north of the interstate.  Rosenoff Road in Adams County extends westwards as Road 3 NE in Grant County. The road is an alternate route linking the towns of Moses Lake and Ritzville.  Crossing gently rolling hills, it is two-lane, mostly paved, and you can expect little traffic (until word gets out!).

Heading eastwards: take exit 179 to Moses Lake, turn north onto state highway 17, then east onto Road 3 NE.

Heading westwards: take exit 221 to Ritzville, and take the first left onto Division Street, which becomes Rosenoff Road.  (See maps above.)

Vital Statistics
One way trip: 1 hour driving at 50-60 mph with stops; about 41 miles (66 kilometers).
