A classic Puget Sound ride, Sun Top combines all that is right, good, and decent about mountain biking into one epic adventure. Miles of thigh-burning climbing, spectacular views of Mount Rainier and surrounding peaks, steep descents, technical trails of skill and stamina, and creamy peanut butter–smooth singletrack make Sun Top another must-ride. It is also the last and most difficult leg of the daunting Cascade Triple Crown. Trail surface: Gravel forest service roads, smooth hard-packed singletrack, and a short paved section at the end of the ride.
