This is one option for a shuttle ride. Drop a car at the middle yough takeout and drive up Sugarloaf Rd to Firetower Rd, turn left onto the gravel road and park at the first big parking area. From the parking area ride the road until you see a gate on your left. Follow the trail behind the gate to link up to McCune trail. After you do McCune, ride out to the road and turn right then make the first left onto Sarver Rd. Once on Sarver rd, look for Upper Sugarloaf XC trail entering the woods on your right. Follow Upper Sugarloaf until you make it to the sledding hill, go down sledding hill and cross the road to link up to Canyons Edge Loop. After a loop or two here we head back across the street and up to Backside Sugarloaf Trail (Meatloaf). Follow it until it links up to Sugarloaf trail and cross over two gravel roads. Keep an eye out for the single track re-routes off of Sugarloaf trails problem areas. About halfway down Sugarloaf there is a connector that will take you up to the road and link up to Baughman for your final descent into town. Jump in the river then head to Fall City Pub for a cold one!
