Faset Peak Loop

Average Rating:    (4.67 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

Warning: This is a wet feet ride. Ride too early in the season and you might get your crotch wet.

Find single track trail 22 leaving the road heading Northwest. It climbs a bit and then drops down into the creek bottom. Ignore trails 404 and 56 leaving on the right. Stay on this main trail for 8.5 miles, crossing the creek 18 times, to a marked intersection with trail 416, Declaration something. Turn right. and climb in a narrow sunken single track up to a Forest Service road at Faset Peak at mile 12.2 and 1800’ vert gain. Turn right on road and almost immediately left on Ermine Ridge trail 413 which drops you back down to Independence Creek again at 17.1 miles. Turn right across the creek and within 100 feet find trail 22. Turn left and retrace your wet feet crossings back to the trail head at mile approximate 23

Summary:
Independence Creek is the only trail that I envy riders that bring the largest full-suspension bikes. They can plow through the foot deep current of water and large rocks. Make no mistake though, whether you ride or wade the 18 crossings it is a wet ride. An added bonus is an elk bugling when it hears your water logged brakes.

Summary:
Just drop dead beautiful scenery but you need to keep your eyes on the trail. In Sept the water was at least bottom bracket depth. You cross and recross the creek, don’t bother taking your shoes off. The climb is easier and the descent is more enjoyable done as described. You can combine Magee Peak trail to make a 34 mile ride.

Recommended Route:
As described

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Combine with Magee Peak Loop for big day.
Other trails with Kingston as the nearest city.
