The first trail to the actual trail system is called IAB (Its A Bitch). IAB does live up to its name as you Bike/Hike 1 mile and gain 500ft, but once at the top there is no more big climbs, the trail are all rolling fun, technical. There are a few great views of the Snoqualmie Valley from up top at Tolt, but most of the trails are classic western Washington lowland forests - ferns, cedar, fir, roots, etc.
Can hold a few big puddles in the wet months, but pretty much rideable year-round.
Road Tolt MacDonald today. Nice ride. First time riding here. Per advisement road the perimiter roads first - got a feel for the layout. Yes, IAB is tough, but not too bad in terms of grunt. I was able to ride about 2/3rds of it. So... what is up with the danger tape markers across certain trails? I presume these are to keep folks out of the logging areas? Feels like most of the inner trails between the N-S-E-W roads are all taped off? Even after this week rainy period, the trails were all dry. BTW, what is up with the logging of this area?
