Tolt MacDonald Park

Tolt MacDonald Park Professional Review and Guide

"Owned by King County Parks, the Tolt MacDonald area is quickly becoming a Seattle favorite among fat-tire enthusIasts. The Tolt is an old, well-known ride with a reputation for being an unexciting gravel access road waste of time.

In the past couple of years, however, miles of new trails have been cut through the dense, dark Snoqualmie Forest. In fact, if you haven’t been there in the past eighteen months, you’ll hardly recognize the place. The entire ridge above the Tolt and Snoqualmie Rivers has been injected with sharp turns, gun barrel–narrow singletrack, and rolling terrain."

This is the most poorly marked trail system I have ever ridden - NOTHING is marked. The first two groups of people I talked to laughed and said, "just expect to get lost". Aside from that, the singletrack is fantastic - not too technical or grinding.

You could get lost in all the trails here. We had fun exploring very narrow home-made singletrack. This chapter describes the area well and has a detailed map of the network of trails here. Near Carnation and easy access from Seattle and Bellevue.
