Written Directions

Take Washington Route 509 (starts out being named "SW Dash Point Way") in Federal Way and go south till you hit port of Tacoma. Then take a right on to I-705 (heading north at this point) and follow signs for Ruston Way (which will place you right next to the shores of Commencement Bay). Take this to the end point - Point Defiance Park.


Whether it is the light house at dash point or the mountain view from cliffside restaurant or cruising next to huge tanker ships in the port or the urban environment of tacoma or the restaurant row on ruston way to the scenic park/zoo at point defiance, this is a good road to take a date on .... just saying!!

Road Quality

There are smooth parts and really rough parts especially through the port of tacoma if your looking for a good twisty, make a left on mcmillian road great little twisty section. Overall good road to throw a date on the back and see the sunset.

Roadside Amenities

There is A LOT of places to choose from. From lobster shop at dash point to cliff side which overlooks tacoma. Downtown tacoma has a lot to choose from and ruston way is the highlight eat on the water before you go home nice short run.

Additional Info

take a date its a good road for it

Nickname (optional) : sunset run at cashpoint to point defiance

I ride this route often, especially the section fro Port of Tacoma to Federal Way. It is usually pretty clear with a single annoying stop sign at Brown's Point on the Northbound side, but the twists are easy to take at a greater than Speed Limit clip. Dash Point State park and Dash Point City park are both nice stops. Dash Point City park is next to a Crab Shack, the Cliff House has a good view of the bay (but a little pricey) and Brown's Point diner has great burgers.

Decent ride and the rough spots at Tacoma Port are recently paved. Very nice ride but can get very crowded in the park. The fort is a nice step back in time if that is your kind of thing. Stopped in Shenanigans for a late lunch. On the pricey side but very nice.
