Pick up 509N in downtown Tacoma at the 705 interchange and just keep going. Nice road, well paved, variety of driving...some straight flat at 60...much gentle curving at 35-50...some nice switchbacks farther north near hwy 99. (one is a 10 mph hairpin) Lots of nice scenery as you ride near the coast of puget sound. Need a break? Stop at Brown's Point Lighthouse, restaurants, parks, scenic overlooks in abundance. You can even stay on 509 and end up in seattle, if your ambitious. I'm not, I turned around and headed west/south as sunset came...was rewarded with pink-orange-red-purple sky. Beautiful. and was home just in time to wish I had a warmer jacket.
