Beautiful trail. Very scenic as it winds along the Snoqualmie river. However it is very rocky in places so be prepared to carry your bike over parts unless you are an Expert rider. The trail is probably more amenable to hiking or horse riding but is certainly great for MTB. You can go all the way to the Goldmyer Hotsprings or stop half way at the parking lot for the Dingford Creek trail (There is a bridge here). Both the Trail and the Forest Road 5600 go to the Dingford Creek Trail so you have the option of doing a loop. There was an older road that went along the river to the same point but it washed away some time ago. I went in a dry season, July, which was perfect. With a lot of rain or in early Spring the trail could be very muddy. The Forest Service had posted a sign that the trail was closed to Mountain Bikers until mid-June. Also keep in mind that this trail is only open to bikers on odd calendar days.
