Park at parking lot at Buck Creek turnoff, just across bridge from 410. Cross hwy 410 and go left 30 meters to follow narrow diagonal up into trees, this intersects the White River Trail. Go right and follow it, crossing the base of ranger creek trail and deep creek trail. Keep going east until white river trail meets up with Corral Pass Road (7174). Go up the road. At the parking lot go left (west) and meet narrow singletrack that leads you along dalles ridge. At a few points the trail is near the narrow ridge, be sure and hike off trail a bit to see the views to the north. Eventually trail will head steep down the north side of the ridge, stay left at each trail intersection. First is noble knob trail, next is one that meets up with a forest service road. You'll cross a clearing on a ridge that is the site of the old boy scout shelter that burned in 2018. From that clearing continue south along the ridge, there is a sign saying pallisades trail. Follow it and enjoy the sun-warmed clifftops. Trail descends until steep switchbacks and finally a steep wooden staircase, continue descending narrow stone canyon. Trail finally meets white river trail which you follow east. The signage on the trail is a bit confusing, ignore the sign for 'buck creek trail' as that will take you immediately to the highway, continue on white river trail until the place you originally joined it, you'll see the narrow diagonal down to the highway. Take care crossing 410.

The middle section in the old growth is a ripper. Watch the bars though, there are some trees very close to riding line.

Wouldn’t call this a mountain bike trail, fun and flowy with roots in the upper section, with the most gnarly hike a bike I’ve ever experienced in the lower section. For the climb, there are much much better trails you could be riding.

Favorite trail I’ve ridden since moving to Washington. Ranger creek is a kick in the dick but so worth it for palisades.

Best way to get to this trail is via Ranger which will def test your climbing skills. A solid black climb. Once to the top the views are epic but the down him on Palisades not so much. Lots of hike a bike into some tight switchbacks that are north worth attempting considering the outcome if you fail. I my opinion, the palisades trail is not a good payout for such a long climb.

Classic PNW trail with epic views. Check your speed entering the exposed parts so you don’t fall off a cliff! And be nice to the hikers as there will be quite a few :-)

Awesome! Some roots and rocks especially on the North End. Definitely ride south to north and then head north on 410 and go find Skookum flats which is more technical and ride back south

This section of the trail is more difficult, narrow, and has way more exposure than the other White River trail sections. Exposure got in my head and I found little features and turns on here more difficult than on a similar trail without the exposure.
