Written Directions

Head east out of Sultan on Route 2. Less than a mile from town turn left onto Sultan Basin Rd and take it up to Spada Lake.

Scenery

Starts with a long straight stretch though a residential area, but soon becomes a curvy forest road. Breaks in the trees allow good views of the mountains as well as the stream that the road follows. At the end of the road is Spada lake, however the last few miles are gravel road.

Road Quality

Absolutely full of turns once you are past the initial straight. No potholes, but debris from trees can be on road during fall. Beware of blind corners as most car traffic on this road is going at 25 MPH. Last few miles of road are gravel, so continue at your own risk.

Roadside Amenities

Absolutely nothing on this road but nearby Sultan has everything you should need.

Good road to ride in spring summer and fall. There is another option out of Startup if you want to avoid the longer straight part. Pass Sultan to Startup and make a left on Kellogg Lake Road. This Option has more curves.

This is a fun road - low traffic, smooth pavement, great curves, great scenery. Road becomes dirt/gravel 4-5 miles before you get to the lake. The gravel is ridable on a street bike.
The only drawback to the excellent paved part of this road is it's so short.

A pleasant road a short ride away from the immediate East Side. The dirt section at the end has a fair bit of loose gravel, washboard, and very large potholes. Riding this alone was a bad idea as I suffered a puncture (nail), most of the road is out of mobile range, and more than a dozen vehicles (including 2x motorcycles) drove by without stopping to offer assistance. No sign of any sort of Ranger support on busy holiday weekend. I hiked 6 miles in leathers until a nice fellow picked me up and gave me a ride. Retrieved my bike a few hours later.

This road is great fun, not very crowded, lots of trees line the road so it take longer to dry out after its rained. There are lots of places to pull out for what I think it hunting or camping, so watch for debris on the road do to cars getting on and off. The last 2 miles of road to the lake are dirt and can be a bit dicey which is why i gave it a 3. I did it on my sv650s no problem, just go slow. Not sure but might be bad during rain. If you make it to the end the view of the lake and the damn are totally worth it!
