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.

      A little surprising to see some bits of snow on RR, and not too far up. Minor muddy spots, but the trail was riding REAL nice. Tacky, fast and fun!! : )
