Road 8312 was washed out requiring a detour from 83 down Willow trail (a short XC ski-single track gem) back to 8312. The grind up 8312 is a 6+ mile 1500 ft climb on gravel road with drop-jaw views of St Helens, Adams, Ranier and Hood. As always, come prepared with a USGS map and compass. An odometer etc helps. We did an out and back and logged about 17 miles due to a missed turn on the switch-back at mile 4+. Resist the temptation to go straight unless you want to contour east and take in another beautiful view of Adams. Otherwise, take the left swithchback onto the gray crushed rock road to the top.
