This fantastic loop covers rolling singletrack and a forest road descent while weaving around an actual chain of lakes. Although Mount Adams rarely comes into view, two river crossings and great singletrack make this moderately difficult ride one you will want to do again and again.

An OK trail, if it wasn't torn to pieces by dirt bikes. Erosion has made ascents and descent extremely squirrelly in places, even unrideable in a few sections. Early season may be better, but I doubt it. Given that it's an hour drive just from Randle, and the "scenic" qualities are pretty thin for the area, I couldn't recommend it to anybody.
