One of the best rides around! Loved it, it has a little of everything, short climbs, fun rolling terrain, beautiful scenery and some steep downs!
Great trail with epic descent along Falls Creek. Tread is a little rough at the top, mostly due to the fact that not many wheels roll along it...but it get's better and better as you descend. I rode it as a loop, parking at the top of Old Man Pass. 20 miles of trails with a few short stretches of dirt/gravel road, 10 miles of hateful paved road from end of trail back up Hwy 30 to car(2000)ft elevation gain). Perfectly set up for a shuttle...but shuttles are for REI shoppin', SUV drivin', tractor seat ridin' whusses. If this trail got more bike traffic, it could quickly become one of the best cross-country oriented singletracks in Wa!
Great ride! Even though it's a shuttle, you still get a good work out. The terrain is fast and not too technical. There are parts that will test your nerve. The forests are lush and the views are spectacular. The trail is however, a bit difficult to follow. There are many trail crossings. We got lost for about an hour but, is part of the fun of trying a new trail. The final downhill is steep and made it all worth it! I highly suggest this ride! Just make sure you have the trail directions with you.
