Martis Lookout and Fiberboard

This ride would start from the light at Northstar at 9:00, go up 267 & turn left onto the road that goes up to Martis Lookout. After descending back to 267 we will go up to Brockway Summit and turn right on the paved road known variously as Mt Watson Road or the Fiberboard Freeway or Forest Service 73 or 16N74.

Because this includes two out and back routes, it would be easy for someone to only do part of the ride. For instance, someone not wanting to do the ride up 267 could meet us at the start of the road to Martis Lookout. Someone not wanting to do 267 or Martis Lookout could meet us at Brockway Summit and only do the Fiberboard Freeway.

The table below contains the necessary mileage and elevation gain to help you decide. This information was extracted from my Garmin data for a ride I did on 9/30/10 where I met David and Jay for the Fiberboard portion of the ride.

You can check out the entire ride for that day at:http://connect.garmin.com/activity/51175009

Using the data from this ride the time table would look like:

Leave Northstar:                              9:00

Start up Martis Lookout Road:    9:25-9:30

Brockway Summit:                         10:30-10:35

 

If you are planning to do the entire ride, I recommend bringing extra water. There’s no place to get water along the way.
