Runner Notes

Minimal obstacles and a mellow grade make for smooth going until the steep climb near the end.

Description

If you're looking for a lovely ridge run that climbs gradually from the trailhead (until it rises steeply) to reach the Noble Knob Trail, this trail is for you. Near the beginning, this trail also intersects with the start of the Ranger Creek Trail. On a clear day expect to enjoy view of Mt. Rainer, Mt. Baker, Glacier Peak, and Stuart Peak along with the the distant Olympic Mountains. The rich forest and common wildflower blossoms make for pleasant going.

This is one of a number of trails open to mountain bikers in the area so keep an eye-out for descending riders.
