This is a physically exerting trail due to being torn up by motorcycles and atvs. I did a loop consisting of mainly the mission creek trail, 18+ miles total. Small uphill climbs followd by quick downhills mark this mainly flat trail. The puddles were not as bad as I feared, but i was wet and dirty by the time i was done. This is the best signed trail system I have ever seen, almost impossible to get lost. I did see some environmentlists out there who were happy to see a mountain biker.
This is some really sweet riding. Felt in parts like I was exploring somewhere far far away from the nightmare of I-5. Don't be suprised if you endo the second your eyes leave the trail to lolly-gag at some scenery. Try this and you'll never want to have to ride the much over-ridden mission creek/twin lakes trails.
Definitely my favorite place in the Greater Seattle area. Took a friend here and the trails have dried up nicely and the riding was incredible. Exploring the singletrack by the "watering hole" was fun. Rode it one day on a hard tail, and the next day on a dual susp rig--better with dual suspension!
