Moderate XC trails, mostly on converted road, lots of climbing, great views, 18 miles total, 4200' elevation gain, 75% single track.

The majority of climbing is found on the road connecting the Harris lake area trail to and from the Phase 1 area trails. For a higher % singletrack ride, skip the out and back to Harris lake.

Turn-by-Turn Guide:
Park at the trail head and ride up the road 1.8 miles. At the watershed gate, hang right onto the singletrack, up to the ridge and down the trail. You can continue on the singletrack of the phase 1 trail for a 4 mile ride, or take a left (the only intersection) at the top of the ridge and head west on the phase 2 singletrack. At the end of it, you will hit a doubletrack logging road at a T intersection (beginning of phase 3) - go right there and follow the road, taking the first right fork, and the second left fork, to the lake. Most of this latter section is doubletrack but the last couple miles before the lake the trail turns into a very technical singletrack with some rocky sections and tight switchbacks. Doing the entire "reverse lollipop" to the lake and back is 18.5 miles and 4200' of accumulated elevation gain.

Access Info

From Seattle, take I-90 east to Exit 47, the Asahel Curtis exit.

Turn right at the end of the offramp, and go a couple hundred feet to the stop sign.
Turn right onto Tinkham Rd (dirt, but good with some potholes), and go 1.2 miles.
Take your first left onto FS road 5510, go 3.8 miles, always staying on the main road. When you come to the big former shooting pit (at a gate), you are at the trail head.
The trail begins just on the other side of the gate on your right.

 The current GPS coordinates are wrong, the trail is actually a reverse lollipop shape. I've uploaded my own GPS file of the full trail, if it has a loop on the parking lot end then you are looking at the correct map.

 This trail is too nice to get ignored, it's an awesome cross country ride on an exposed ridge with lots of berms and nice scenery.

 I've uploaded a GPS from last week. Only did the lower OAB, next time I'll get the higher lollipop in and add it as a separate optional section.

 Rode it 7/22/16 and it was in good shape. Just a couple of downed trees on the Harris Lake OAB. Nice work out there, Evergreen.
