    Summary

    Starting in the north, the road starts off somewhat unimpressive. Open meadows and a smattering of pine trees will be your watchful companions until you near the Ranger Station the road will begin to follow the meandering of Sullivan Creek on the west. As the road turns south you'll find yourself along the banks of Sullivan Lake and the road continues its serpentine path through the trees.

    As you reach the southern tip of the lank, the road will turn East before diving south again and the road will get slightly more technical before it gradually straightens as it works its way back towards the main route and the quaint town of Ione, Washington.

    This is not a technical blast through the trees, but much more of a leisurely stroll through a park. When ridden with that expectation, its a wonderful side road.

    When you reach the main road, you have the option of re-connecting with it, or you can continue along the much smaller, much less traveled frontage road that sticks to the Eastern side of the creek. We always choose the road less traveled.
