Description

Add this great singletrack loop to get a few more miles when you ride Knebal Springs Trail #474. It travels well both ways, but the climbing is easier if you go clockwise. It also provides convenient access to Lower Cook's Meadow Trail as FSR #4420.

The loop maintains a pleasant narrow-to-wide singletrack and is relatively free of obstacles, though you'll assuredly come across some blow down early in the season. There are a couple of good viewpoints looking southeast from northern sections of the trail.

This connects to the Eight Mile Creek Campground via a little trail near the bottom. If you're not camping, you can park at the campground's day-use area (remember to bring cash or your Northwest Forest Pass to cover the fees).

Great blue trail with rolling ups and downs. Some technical sections near the top with some rock gardens. We rode it clockwise for a manageable climb. 6.8mi — 1h 10m
