The original description of this route can from Dirtworld's Santo Criscuolo (http://www.dirtworld.com/archives/archive%5Fepic.asp). Do Crystal Mountain, Palisades, and Sun Top routes in one day, well sort of. I'm not aware of anyone that's added in Skookum Flats/White River to formally complete all three loops in one day. From Buck Creek cross hwy 410 and take White River trail to FS 7174 and head right/downhill .25 mile and turn left on FS 7176. Gain 500' or so and eventually turn left on the Crystal Mountain Parkway pavement. Go ride the Crystal Mountain trail loop and return on this path. When you get back to fs 7174 head uphill to Dalles Ridge and do the Palisades trail ride. Be careful on the switchbacks! Ride westbound down hwy 410 to the Dalles Ridge campround and fill up with water and take the trail at the end of the camping area to road 74 and head uphill and do the Sun Top ride. End up back at the Buck Creek trailhead before dark and you've done it! Elevation is debatable, but probably about 11,000' is conservative.
How to get there:
Take Washington SR 410 eastbound about 15 miles past Greenwater. One possible staging area is the Buck Creek Road trailhead.
Preride each route prior to attempting this unless you are an endurance professional. This may be th
