Trail Description
About this trail
Climb the gravel road for 5.7 miles and 3,000+ feet elevation, to where trail crosses the road.
Turn left onto singletrack to start the ride, or continue on the gravel road to the summit of Sun
Top (another mile and 1,000') for really nice views from the lookout of Mt Ranier et all,
singletrack off the summit comes back to where the trail crosses the road at the 5.7 mile mark.
Climb the trail for the next mile...then ~8 Miles of mostly downhill singletrack to the White River
(not real technical, but smooth and fast and beautiful scenery). Return via Skookum Flats Trail
5.5 miles of technical singletrack to the car to complete loop.

Review: This trail was awesome, and the ability to shuttle it makes it better. Can get really rough as the weather can really rut it up. Can't complain too much though because the long downhill was a blast.

Review: When the snow finally melts, Sun Top is one of my favorite rides in all of Washington. I do not however ride up the road, I shuttle this trail and loop back via Skookum flats. The views of Mt. Rainier, the White River Valley, Palisades and Ranger Creek can't be beat. There is no need to go all the way up to the old fire lookout unless you just want to check it out. The trail head starts with a very steep climb of about a mile and a half, you break out looking strait at Mt. Rainer, 7+ miles of single track later, your at the Randge Creek Airfield, follow the road till you're almost to Highway 410, take a left and enjoy 7+ miles of Skookum Flats.

Review: This is a good ride. But all of the other rides across the valley are much better for the work you put into them. Meaning - Deep Creek, Ranger Creek, Palisades and Christoff
