Ride to Ozette Lake and Sol Duc

Been wanting to ride the Hoko Ozette Rd and Sol Duc to check off Destination Highway #31 and #15's Twisted Edge (rank out of 300+) from my list.  We'll either grab lunch or pack our own to eat at Lost Resort and finish up at the 7 Cedars Casino for a bite/beverage before those heading back to the greater Seattle area take off. ~Claudette

Meet at the Chevron Station at the Longhouse Market by 11am.  If you pass the 7 Cedars Casino you've gone too far.  Kickstands up around 11:15am. 

For those coming from the Seattle area: Suggest taking the Edmonds/Kingston 9:40am ferry. Can buy tickets online at https://secure4.gatewayticketing.com/wsdot/shop/ViewItems.aspx?CG=21&C=40

After lunch at Ozette Lake, plan to be back to Sequim/7 Cedars Casino by 6pm.

Route: From Kingston to Ozette Lake to Sol Duc Hot Springs 7 Cedars Casino

    So cool to have 24 people join this ride! Despite the drizzle the roads were nice, glad we made it to Ozette Lake and cut out Sol Duc for it's own ride, but it was the company and great people which really made this ride. Thank you!!

    Thanks for the update Nate - see you soon!

    Yes Doug, we'll stop in Clallam Bay, at that Shell station - can us the map to get an idea of when we'll arrive. Don, if you don't catch up with us by PA, you can meet us there. Just remember to turn on Beach Rd to Joyce to head to Hwy 112.

  • Claudette

    Could someone post when you've arrived in Kingston so we'll have an estimate of your arrival if the ferry is running late. I asked Kumi to text me, but I forgot the reception where I am is bad and probably won't get it. Thanks! Beautiful morning over here in Sequim, btw. :D

      Ferry on time. We've got 7-8 riders.

      July 5, 2014

  • Paula B.

    A few of us will be on the 10:30 Edmonds ferry, catch up with you all at some point.

    July 5, 2014

  • Carla J.

    If anyone is taking the 8:45 ferry out of Seattle to Bainbridge, a couple of us are meeting at Cafe Trios (772 Winslow Way) at 9:20 and riding out to sequim together. Will leave at 9:30.

    July 5, 2014

  • Patrick W.

    How many will be at the Edmonds Ferry ??
    Maybe someone can wave me in if they see my Bike ?? I have never taken the Ferry.. I am told we can pull right up in front?? My Bike is Yellow and has a Skull on the front (honest its just for looks) I am an easy going Midwest Guy
    :-)....
    Hope to see some great sights, and meet some awesome people never been up that way.
    Thanks to anyone who can help...

      If you buy a ticket online prior to sail time (and bring the copy with you), you don't have to go thru the toll booth lanes and staging area. Instead, keep to the left of the booths to the traffic light and take a left towards the dock. There is an attendant at a little gatehouse who will scan your ticket and send you to the front of the line to board. Great perk - so use it! Don't miss the ferry, though!

      July 5, 2014

  • Gordon F.

    Sorry I missed the ferry have a safe ride.

    July 5, 2014

  • Patrick W.

    I am not able to go, bummer. Really wanted to ride this 4th of July weekend.
    Hope everyone has a great ride.
    Peace & Good Health

  • SeattleNate

    This'll be fun! I'll be there via the 9:40a Edmonds/Kingston ferry on a red Ducati. See y'all there!

    Carla - I live very close to the downtown terminal but it looked to me like the 8:45a Seattle/Bainbridge ferry was the last one that would get us to Sequim before 11:00a, so I'm sleeping in a bit longer and taking the 9:40a Edmonds boat instead. Patrick - just follow Claudette's directions all the way past the line of cars, hang a left and you'll see where a bunch of friendly bikers are waiting up front.

    I found something when I called around last week. I just wanted to manage expectations of anyone out there hoping to get lodging at this point, as I lucked out after calling 14 places.

    July 4, 2014

    • Angie

      Just to clarify, I was looking around the Sol Duc area. Ended up w/ a reservation in Forks.

      July 4, 2014

  • Robert D

    Had some unexpected things come up, so I will have to bow out.

    Everybody have a great ride, and Be Safe Out There!

    July 4, 2014

  • Carla J.

    Anyone taking the Seattle-Bainbridge ferry on Sat a.m.?

    July 4, 2014

  • Claudette

    For those looking for a place to stay tonight, Paula from Lady Riders had this to share:
    Rooms: at the moment (2 hrs ago), there are a few rooms available for tomorrow night at Lake Crescent Lodge just off Hwy 101 between Port Angeles and Sol Duc Road. Call[masked] for reservations.

    July 4, 2014

    • Paula B.

      Sorry about the lack of availability, Angie - I imagine they're selling quickly. There were only 3 rooms remaining at the lodge earlier. Hope you found something!

      Hotels.com says there is still room at the Holiday Inn in Sequim

    Hi Claudette
    If I can catch the 6:10 am Coho ferry to PA and if the weather looks good can a rider from across the water (Victoria) join you on your ride?

    July 4, 2014

    • Doug E.

      i'm in clallam bay -- do you wanna meet up in pa and then ride to sequim?

      July 4, 2014

    • Doug E.

      actually, belay that -- may hafta cancel out altogether due to sick kid...

      July 4, 2014

    Sorry about dropping...i have a paper due for grad school on Sunday...

  • Claudette

    Hey everyone. Looks to be a great ride Saturday. I'll be offline from now on, but wanted to remind everyone to read the event details and bring a copy of the route with you. It's pretty direct, but... And for riders new to the group, check out the Message Board about my ride style, but I'll give my pre-ride spiel so we're all on the same page.

    And a note about the ferry - remember, don't get in the car line/ferry holding area, ride past that into town and turn left to the ferry dock. A cop will probably be there to direct you. If it's running like today it'll be late, but those of us already on this side will wait. I'm sure there'll be other bikers other than us (around 20+), but just ask if they are with Meetup or mention Claudette and you'll know. See you in a couple of days!

    Anybody planning on meeting up at the Edmonds Ferry?

    June 30, 2014

    • Robert D

      I most likely will ride around, carve a few in the Belfair area, ( that Ian led Fauntleroy ferry ride comes to mind), and meet up in Jamestown @ the Chevron Station.

      July 1, 2014

    • Patrick W.

      I'll be at the Ferry I will look for Bikers and follow their lead... never been on a ferry with the bike... see ya there!!

      July 3, 2014

  • Angie

    Can't wait! But I am a big rain weenie, so if there is even a drizzle anticipated for that day, I'm going to have to back out.

    June 23, 2014

    • Kristopher

      Learn to love the rain. I believe we're learn the most about ourselves when conditions are at their worst.

      July 2, 2014

  • Robert D

    Anybody in the south end who wish to ride along, let me know.... Im planning on leaving early enough (out of Renton), to pound across the T Narrows so I can do 101 up the Hood Canal and maybe even get an oyster or 2 @ the Geoduck Tavern.

    July 1, 2014

  • Doug E.

    i'll be out in clallam bay for the 4th, so i'll hookup with the group from the opposite direction. more time gettin' technical on 112 for me! ;-)

    June 25, 2014

    • Doug E.

      my parents said folks are welcome to drop by their house in clallam bay if y'all need a break.

      June 25, 2014

    • Robert D

      Be careful out there! :)

      July 1, 2014

  • MARK

    Claudette, are we taking the 9:40 as well? Let's plan where to meet and ride together. Call me!

    July 1, 2014

    • Claudette

      Mark, I'll already over in Sequ‎im so I'll see you there. Don't miss the ferry! ;)

      July 1, 2014

  • Kristopher

    I made the run out to Ozette a few months back. It's definitely worth the trip.

    June 29, 2014

  • Angie

    Claudette, can you share the list that you're referring to?

    On a separate note: A 7:30 ride is much longer of a ride than I've ever done, so at the 101/113 intersection, I'm going to peel off and head to Forks for the night and then finish the ride on Sunday.

    June 24, 2014

    • Angie

      Just bought DH! =)

      June 25, 2014

      I love that book. I use it for ALL my rides and have had the best rides thanks to DH! Enjoy Angie. :)
