Ebike friendly ? There are no posted rules that we could see regarding ebikes. The roads are on private (Ueland Tree Farm) lands and they've opened them to the public. However the signs say "no motorized vehicles." Technically, ebikes are motorized. However, I rode one there with the motor either off or low going at my very leisurely pace and did not have an issue.
Pet friendly ? Dogs are allowed. However, please keep them on a leash, or at least from running in front of my bike or chasing me!
Accessible? No. It's an uphill road with loose gravel and dirt.

This is a nice gravel ride on wide gravel and dirt roads closed to motorized traffic. Of course, they're open to hikers, too, but there are some hiking trails that leave from the same parking lot and go up to Dickerson Falls.

It's quite a bit of uphill, but you get a bench and a good view at the top, and then you get some nice downhill on the way down (though a bit of the first part on the way back was a bit too much vibration for me on my gravel bike without a full suspension. The rest was great.

Lebers Lane to Zachs Lookout

Altitude: 0 ft

This is the start of the route. Note that you go UPHILL from the parking lot. If you're going toward the railroad tracks, you're going the wrong way!

End

Altitude: 0 ft

We end back where we began. Whew!

Lebers Lane Trailhead Parking Lot

Altitude: 0 ft
Address: Lebers lane trailhead, Leber Ln NW, Bremerton, WA 98312, USA

There's a generous parking lot here! There are also some foot hiking trails leading out from this parking lot to Dickerson Creek Waterfall.

Zach's Lookout Sign

Altitude: 0 ft

The sign clearly points the direction to turn.

Zach's Lookout

Altitude: 0 ft
Address: H69W+WC Bremerton, WA, USA

Stop and take a break here, sit on the bench, enjoy the view, and head back down.
