Ignore Kirkendall's description of the trail. The guy gives directions for riding up some of the best single track in the state. Don't we live for awesome single track down hill? Ride up the access roads underneath the chair lifts to the summit house. The access roads are steep but you can make the 3.5 mile climb in about an hour. Head north out Crystal's Northway Trail and get ready for babies butt smooth single track, spectacular views of Mt Rainier, wild flowers in all colors and beautiful old growth forest. Sweeping banked turns and several sharp switchbacks make the Northway Trail a fast and rowdy ride.
How to get there:
Take Hwy. 410 from Enumclaw. You will pass through Green Water. About 20-30 minutes after green Water take a left at Crystal Mt. Blvd. Park in the ski area parking lot. Parking lot is six miles up from 410.
