You will to come to a clearing whick is the future subdivision "Grand Ridge". Take the bark trail and take your first right. Follow the "jeep road" untill you pass under a fallen tree and take a right in the "fork". Keep right on the next fork and take a sweet descent back to where you started up. Follow the gravel road untill you reach the 2ND trail droping off to the left. Take it down, cross a bridge over the Issaquah Creek and go under the HY.

Summary:
This is a sweet ride. The first trail is pretty technical, but short(about 1.5m) then you hit the HELLUVVA climb (3.4Miles) and then you hit the best part. A 4 mile downhill which is toitally AWSOME!!! Be ready for flats, broken chains, and other stuff. Alwayys bring extra tubes and extra clothes and leave them in the car, it is usually muddy!

Summary:
not too bad of a trail. Pretty mild for the most part. The exit on the North side of the free way is really ht eonly technical part. But it was fun. Salivating over those hiking trails though!!!

Recommended Route:
I reccommend the route above but it could be interesting both ways.
