This trail loop is far from help and really is in the mountains. Bring your backup layers, headlamp and first aid kit!

It will take some hard work to lick this lollipop route! The route currently begins at the Snoqualmie Point Park, but can just as easily begin from the road parking. Ascend the gravel road until you see the current beginning of the Raging Ridge trail. Climb the Raging Ridge trail, noting that climbers have priority over those descending. Continue to follow the ridge past the trail you will see near the summit on your right. Stay LEFT!

Continue on this ridge until the trail descends into the valley. You may see some optional trails dropping off to your right. These are black or double black technical trails not yet officially open. Drop to the valley floor and then wipe your smile off your face as you begin climbing again. The climbing trail is yet to have an official trail name, but it's nicknamed "Gold Digger". Ascend this trail until you meet up with the Raging River at the summit once again.

Minding the fact that as a descender, you must stop and yield to climbers, now is time to have some real fun! Descend the swoopy and fun two way trail, riding all the way back down the mountain until you reach your car.

Note: Due to the quirks of Trailforks, the final descent back to the car is not counted in the totals. Update to edit this in soon.

Trying to break 7 minutes on this trail is the latest goal for this old man. Super fun and I can't thank enough the volunteers, Evergreenmtb.org...

Pretty dry below Stan’s overlook but mucky above. Mostly frozen at the top. Too much snow at the clear cut but looks like some folks kept going. Not bad overall

Snow on the ridge so I went up the road from the bridge to the upper trail crossing. Don’t know what the trail is like above the road but it’s all clear below. Just one low hanging tree above the slalom course
