The Return of Dash to Diablo


Diablo Lake

Meetup:      9:00
Departure:  9:30

Please arrive with a full tank of gas.  Bring a FRS radio if you have one.

When I first joined Club Miata Northwest, the first drive I attended was the Dash to Diablo drive.  This is a mainly scenic drive with some spirited sections mixed in, starting in Snohomish and ending at the Lake Diablo Lookout.  The last time we did this drive was September of 2015 (and it was pouring rain for a good portion of the drive)..

We'll be meeting up at the Rite Aid on the corner of Pine Ave and 2nd St. in Snohomish.  After a short driver's meeting, we will be departing at about 9:30 AM for some fun back roads.  We will pass through Granite Falls, and after a few more twisties we will take a rest break in Arlington.

On the next leg we will pass through the area of the Oso landslide on our way to Darrington, and take some more backroads on our way to Concrete.  We will do a fun loop on a backroad and then head back into Concrete where we will be stopping for lunch.

After lunch we then head towards Marblemount, and up to the Lake Diablo Lookout on Highway 20.  This is the end of the official drive.

However, on the way back home I am planning on returning to Concrete for some ice cream at Act One Ice Cream Parlor in Concrete, after which I will likely drive some additional fun roads on my way back to Seattle.
