The first 6 miles of the trail are now open! Big views, big vert, just outside North Bend. The trail starts near Rattlesnake Lake, just a few minutes outside of North Bend and only 40 minutes from Seattle. The first several miles amble up Cedar Butte through pristine forest, then turn east and ascend the flanks of Mt. Washington. There is a cliff along the trail, with multiple opportunities for stunning views. The trail then changes to road-trail conversion before climbing a rock cliff that will be difficult to climb, but with stunning views.
Olallie trail is also unofficially known as the "Len Francies trail" in honor of the man who spent so much time building and maintaining mountain bike trails here in Washington with Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance.
The rest is still under construction by Evergreen, Mountains to Sound Greenway, and DNR. This will connect to another road-trail conversion section, before finishing on singletrack just below the summit of Mt. Washington. Help us finish the trail for a full loop experience!

We'll ride up to the top, stash our bikes, get some work done and ride down.
8.6 miles each way, plus a 2.5 mile pedal to the trail head via the John Wayne/Iron Horse trail.
2550 feet of vert, topping out at 3700 feet.
2/3 new singletrack, 1/3 road-trail conversion.
$1.168 million project with funding secured by Washington State Parks.
Park at Rattlesnake Lake and pedal 2.5 mostly level miles to the trail head via the John Wayne (aka Iron Horse) trail. The start on Olallie trail will be on your right. From there the trail is an out-and-back heading up Cedar Butte and up to near the top of Mount Washington at 3700 feet. As an out-and-back route finding will be easy.

|Snow free until 3200', above benches and beyond 3rd VP. Then in a space of 100yards, it goes from 1/2 snow to 6" snow. Seriously. But 3250' is...|

|All clear to the first false top. That’s where snow starts. You can ride a bit more to the next flat spot but it’s too deep after that|

|Just a tad damp. A few snow patches before the hiking trail. That’s where I turned around. All clear to just above the benches|
