Trail Description
About this trail
Nice twisty and technical single track with some jeep roads, situated across the Snoqualmie river from the small farming town of Carnation, WA. Follow the signs to the John MacDonald park and after unloading the bike head across the suspension bridge (be sure to walk the bike) to the trails. Once across the bridge, head straight up the hill and into the woods. The steep 1 mile climb to the top will give you a REALLY nice warm up. At the top are some jeep roads and a whole bunch of single track snaking through the dense woods. Best to go in with someone that is familiar with the trails as it is very easy to lose your bearings even with a map.

Review: Lots of well kept trails in a spider web network. Easy place for an XC rider to get in some good miles. Only improve would be to mark the trails.

Review: Hadn't ridden Tolt for probably close to ten years. After attending a few recent workparties to reclaim trail in the recently logged area, thought it was worth riding there again. Great conditions for this time of year, and had kind of forgotten how fun the trails are. Once the trails are rest abolished in the clear this will make for some good rides.

Review: This area is more oriented towards XC/Trail riding. Plenty of options for almost any level of rider. Most trails are twisty single track with a roots, rocks, and roll-overs. The initial climb up IAB (It's A Bitch) is a good warm up on those cool mornings. There are many trails in the area, way more than can be conquered at one go. Though a few words of caution as you may come across a few horseback riders during the peak riding season.

Review: 1 mile climb up to the trails. Once there, lots of single track to explore.
