Amabilis Mountain

Amabilis Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"This 11.2-mile ride is a combination of two out-and-back spurs and a loop. Of the climbing, 2 miles are easy, 2.5 miles are moderately difficult, and 1 mile is demanding. The route follow good gravel roads, with some exposed rocks and a loose, coarse tread in the steepest areas. There is a short stretch of dirt doubletrack in good condition.

The second half of the ride is a long descent that starts out roughly: the road is washed out and rutted at the top, but it quickly improves. Freeway noise and views of clear-cut forests are predominant as you climb. Your senses are rewarded with less assaulting stimuli as you near the summit of Amabilis Mountain. At the top, the view of Kachess Lake, with its mountain backdrop, is lovely. To the north you can see the rugged Rampart and Chikamin Ridges, which lie in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness Area. Mt. Rainier looms large on the horizon in the southwest."
