9th Annual Gig Harbor Drive


9th Annual Gig Harbor Drive


Normally, this is Jim Boyde's drive, but he is not able to host it this year, so to continue the tradition Zeke Taney will be leading the drive. 
 
 Please bring a FRS radio if you have one.
 
We will meet at Gateway Park just west of Purdy on Hwy 302 at around 8am.  After a short driver's meeting, we will depart on the drive at 8:30
 
The drive will head west on Hwy 302 to Hwy 3 through Belfair and along the north shore of Hood Canal to our first stop at Dewatto River Campground.

After a short rest stop we will head up Dewatto Bay Rd to the challenging Bear Creek-Dewatto Rd, then continue our journey north passing several lakes on our way to our second stop at Kitsap Memorial State Park.
 
 
 
We then head across the Hood Canal bridge on Hwy. 104 to South Point Rd and tour some nice back roads, through the town of Quilcene,  on our way to the lunch stop at Quilcene Campground.
 
After lunch, we continue down Hood Canal, through the towns of Hoodsport and Union to our next stop at Potlatch State Park.

From Potlatch State Park, we will go to Trails End Rd, going past Mason and Benson lakes, making our way to Hwy 3, then down Hwy 3 through the town of Allyn,  back along the bay on Hwy 302 to our starting and ending point at Gateway Park. 
 
We will be making several stops at state parks, so having a Discover Pass is recommended, also remember to pack yourself a lunch, i'm hoping we will have nice weather that day since none of the community shelters are open at the parks at this time.

I hope you will be able to come and join us!
