Trail shared by Jeff White

A narrow, advanced option off North Creek that climbs very steep sides to a 40’ ridge with spectacular lake views.

Description

Immediately after the river bridge with the lake on your right - ascend this ADVANCED option, climbing the narrow trail with very steep sides to a 40’ ridge. Pause if you dare, taking in the spectacular lake vista. Proceed around a tight 180-degree switchback coming quickly to a steep 90-degree right turn drop onto a high speed compression boardwalk 5’ above the ground. Hike-a-bike steps are provided for the faint-of-heart!

A short climb finishes onto a tight, descending turn with a high-speed bank into a climb. This transitions to a long drop and climb towards the exit drop where the option merges with the main North Creek Trail.

Ledgy trail with a brutally steep and exposed climb at the beginning. Also features a nice compression bridge following the crux of the climb. 0.1mi
