Trail Overview

This trail is hardly a trail and more of some backwoods exploring through an old logging and quarry site. The best part of this loop is the campsite is well worth the short trek. Due note the trail is a skinny one lane road all the way up, so say goodbye to that scratch-less paint job you are rocking and hello to some pinstriping. There are a few campsites along this trail along with one large one that can easily fit 5+ vehicles with a spectacular view. If you follow this trail all the way to the end you will find a very nice and flat secluded campsite with an excellent view all the way into Seattle on a clear day. There are no obstacles on this trail, however the last swirl does have a shortcut straight to the campsite that is a fun little hill to climb. Please leave this spot better than you found it!

Difficulty

This trail is more of a road, as you are going between gravel and dirt the entire drive. A few bumps here and there but nothing the family station wagon can't handle. At the end there is a fun little hill to climb but there is an obvious bypass you can take.

No snow. Asphalt at the beginning, then a mixture of dirt and gravel. Someone went through and cleared some downed trees (Thank you). We went up in a full sized truck and got some pin striping. Cloudy when we went so no views.

Deep Snow
Made it 0.8 miles from camping lookout. Turned around due to 8+ inches of snow on trail at this point, didn't try chaining up, probably could have made it then. 98 outback with 27" yokohama geolander at's. This snow is from late February/early March dump. Temps and freezing level rising rapidly, trail will melt within one month.

Road to get here was totally clear. Narrow. Some pretty sharp corners. Pretty clean, and firewood left by previous visitors!
