Mountain Biking the Puget Sound Area

Not a bad ride. Very typical of Northwest riding outside of Oregon. There was some good scenary and some technical challenges. If you are looking for a good training ride or good speed this is not the ride.
This is a good choice, whether ridden in combination with other trails or not. The technical challenges are there but can be ridden around if needed. The views are great, the terrain is rugged and reasonably technical, and Rainier is hovering close by. As of this August of 2007 this was the sole mountain biking trail from Washington that was selected by the IMBA as an IMBA Epic trail. And it is well deserved.
This is one of the best known rides in the area, but not one of my personal favorites. It's good for people that don't want to climb, as it's mostly flat with a few ups and downs along the way. But if you are looking for a shorter ride to train on, or wanting to add to another ride in the area to form a longer loop (Dalles Ridge or Sun Top), this is a nice option to have.
