Just got off work and only have an hour to ride? Are you an intermediate level rider or better looking for a fun, not overly technical loop in the foothills of the cascades? Wish there was a "Crank it up" type trail here in Washington? Well then THIS is your route!

Grind your way up to the top of Upward Mobility, then turn left onto the fire road as soon as you reach the top. Look for the marked trailhead to Poppin' Tops on your left side, descending off of the fire-road.

 Excellent after-work ride with a good workout and rewarding downhill

 Skipped the Poppin Tops Upper as it was raining, still great ride with some good jumps, a few potted turns and gnarly pitted transitions, but was still a blast, even on my hard tail.

      Lots of baby head rocks to mess with your flow, lots of holes opening up, still very fun.
