Leisurely ride to the other side.

Going for a short 3 hour ride this morning. Would welcome some company.
This is the route:

Leisurely to moderate stress free pace with a stop at Quilcene. I'll be on a Honda CRF1000.
Start at Seabeck pizza in Seabeck at 9am or pick up along the way.
KSU at 9am plan on return by noon.
The area around Lords lake is new to me and maybe dirt roads. I don't know but plan on finding out.
Short notice but hey when you get the urge you gotta go.

Lords loop is definitely gravel all the way.
The Leland section has some paved sections, but mostly gravel.

I really like my benchmark atlas. You can find them used on Amazon for less than $10. It does show gravel roads as dashed lines, paved as solid. Not 100% accurate, but a start.
Probly 10% of the gravel roads shown have been gated,abandoned or decommissioned. For an accurate map of passable roads get a copy of the MVUM map at the ranger station.
Penny creek, FS27 and lords lake loop makes for a nice ride. FS27 is scenic,twisty and paved for quite a few miles.

I've always been curious where and how far FS27 road went and came out. I've driven it to hike Marmot pass, and have been wanting to ride that road.

If you guys want to see the good stuff, I'm available on Sunday. Meet at the Hilltop gas station (305&Pioneer Way) KSU at 9am.

We can ride up to the top of Walker Mtn, Do FS23 and maybe have lunch at Fat Smittys.
