Mountain Biking Palisades Trail #1198

  Add a review
#223 of 1,205 mountain bike trails in Washington
#17,783 in the world

This trail has it all, from beautiful forests, good climbing and fun descents to technical sections with views of Mt. Rainier from cliffs that will inspire you.
(Instructions if climbing the trail) Start riding through old growth timber. At a tenth of a mile cross Dalles Creek and for the next mile be careful as you hike through a series of short switchbacks in loose rock.
You will gradually climb and cross Snoquera Creek at mile 3.7. At mile 4.7 you reach viewpoints of the White River Valley below. The next section of your ride will take you through a recent timber harvest area at mile 5.5. Another viewpoint of the valley below is just ahead at mile 5.7. At mile 6.6 is the junction with Ranger Creek Trail 1197. This trail is commonly incorporated into loops by using the White River, Skookum, Ranger Creek, Dalles Ridge, Noble Knob, and Deep Creek trails.

Sawyers from Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance have kept the trail open the past few years, be sure to support them to keep this work happening and these trails open.

Getting there
Drive east on State Highway 410 from Enumclaw, continuing through the small town of Greenwater. After leaving Greenwater, look for the Dalles campground on the right. Continue past this, and the trailhead will be on the left. It is a wide spot along the highway and easy to miss.
