  • This ride is  75%  singletrack, so singletrack experience is a must. When applying, please let me know what singletrack trails you have ridden in Washington in the past three months.
  • You can find details about the ride on or Trailforks. However, the route posted on these site goes to Fairholme Campground, which is beyond the Log Cabin Resort. Do not let the level 3 difficulty rating lull you into thinking. that this is "easy". It's two full days of riding which includes a lot of mileage and a lot of elevation gain
