This is a great hidden gem that myself and a friend stumbled upon recently. Its a little tricky to find but here goes nothing... Head down Dupont Rd towards Steilacoom, pass all the ranges on your left, passed the North Fort gate on your right. The road will start to climb a hill and will twist around for a bit. You will see a couple of small gates and some Fort Lewis signs on the left that say something like Danger keep out, you are looking for the one that has a small parking area and the Fort Lewis sign is facing the opposite direction you are going on the left.If you start seeing houses, you have gone to far. Park there and hit the fire break. From there its up to you. There are tons of singletracks spider webbing throughout. Some are easier with rolling hills, minor obstacles and gentle curves. Others are a bit more technical with very narrow stone bridges, tough rooty uphills, sharp blind turns and a few ramps to jump. Right now the trails are very raw and unmarked. Its our goal to explore more and mark out a nice track with more jumps. We have been out there a few times and have only ran into an older gentleman walking his dog on the fire break. Hope to see more riders out there as this trail is pretty fun and this noob would love to share some pointers with others.
