The Kitsap Peninsula is the second largest peninsula in Washington State (trailing only the Olympic Peninsula) and one of the largest in the continental U.S. 

The traverse connects the southern tip (Longbranch on the Key Peninsula) with the northern tip (Foulweather Bluff in Hansville).

Route begins at the southern tip at Longbranch near Devil's Head. Take Key Peninsula Highway north for ten miles and continue on backroads, Sunnyslope, Highway 3, Sherman Heights, Chico Way, Viking Way, Bond Road, Highway 104, Hansville Road, and Hood Canal Drive to reach Foulweather Bluff. 

There are several logging roads and backroads that can help shave distance and time though require more advanced navigation than my pay grade :-)
