Tour: North Loop to Nowhere Redux
Saturday, April 7, 2018, 8:00 AM until 2:30 PM
Smokey Point Rest Stop
I-5 North MP 207
Come join us for a tour that highlights several good roads “up north” that are mostly well out in the country.
Starting at the Smokey Point Rest Stop just north of MP 207 on I-5 North near Arlington, WA and stops in Sedro Woolley for lunch at Mestizo Mexican Family Restaurant. WE WILL FINISH UP AT EVEYLN'S - A CLASSIC ROAD HOUSE ALONG RT 9 IN CLEAR LAKE after more loops. THIS IS A CHANGE FROM THE ORIGINAL PLAN! During the day you’ll have a chance to experience some roads twice (dead-end turnarounds), practice speed drills at the morning rest stop (single facility – thus small groups), enjoy some great Mexican food, go around in more circles, and end at a popular micro-brewery in Burlington. This updated tour adds more loops and ends much closer to civilization and access to I-5 for the trip home.
The North Loops tour has some great scenery; however, the focus is on the driving experience on back country roads. And if spring comes a bit early, you might see some great colors as well, or at least no snow on the roads! Hope to see you there!
