I-90 Eastbound to Exit 34.Turn left off the exit, cross the highway, pass major truck stop.Road will curve left. About 0.5mi from freeway, turn right onto SE Middle Fork Rd. (Set odometer to zero.)Road splits after less than 1.0mi. Either way works, easiest in to take the right hand fork (SE Lk Dorothy Rd)(NOT a one-way road!!). After about a mile, the MF Rd rejoins, this turns into Forest Road #56. Soon, the pavement ends.After 5.2mi on MF Rd, you'll cross a major bridge. At 9.5mi you'll pass the entries to the CCC Road and CCC Trail. After about 11.5mi, look for the Forest Service trailhead parking lot on the right. Turn in and park. If you get to a major T intersection, you've gone too far.
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.Thank |
I always take the middle fork road up to the hot springs, cross the bridge and then ride down the trail. Much faster and enjoyable. The trail can be a bit tricky at times.Thank |
