Written Directions

The trip starts on WA 3 near Polsbo, Washington. WA 3 is the north/south highway on the Kitsap Peninsula.

Continue on WA 3 north. WA 3 becomes WA 104 where WA 3 turns at the Hood Canal Bridge. Don't turn - go straight. There are gentle turns for a couple of miles and then the speed limit drops to 25. Heed the speed limit change. In about 1/4 mile you enter Port Gamble, a tiny town with great views, and a great BBQ place.

In this ride, it is about the destination and food. The ride is easy.


Road conditions are good, and the road travels typical Western Washington countryside - evergreens and a little farmland. Occasional glimpses of water until you get to Port Gamble when you have a great view of the Puget Sound area.

In the summer there is sailing and kayaking in the area around Port Gamble. Even a small boat and kayak show in the summer!

Road Quality

Excellent road quality. Well maintained. Few gentle turns and hills.

Roadside Amenities

Short ride. Some traffic and good cell coverage so you aren't left stranded.

Mike's Four Star BBQ is our usual destination (though closed in the winter). Fabulous food.

Port Gamble is a nice little walk after you have stuffed yourself at Mikes.

Additional Info

Coming from Seattle, take the Edmonds Ferry to Kingston. Bikes load and exit first.

Off the ferry take 104 North and ride by the water.

This run is not the Port Hadlock run but, the Port Gamble run! Port Hadlock is across the Hood Canal floating bridge, in Jefferson County. Although the ride to Port Gamble is short, it is also beautiful and full of Washington logging history. An easy ride and well worth it. When finished with Port Gamble, retrace your steps to the Hood Canal Floating Bridge, take the first right run after the bridge and follow a beautiful, winding road (very little traffic), to Port Hadlock. This is a winding, comfortable ride with occasional water views. The town of Hadlock is well known for it's food establishments. Don't miss the fish and chips at the Valley Tavern. After a stop in Port Hadlock, it's back to the Kitsap Peninsula or head north to Port Townsend.

Hwy 3 drops down to two lanes in this stretch, but still has lots of traffic. Scenery isn't great in most spots. Similar views of the Olympics are easily duplicated in other areas with better rides.
