    Ride Ranger Creek Area on Saturday?

    I've been living in seattle for a year now but have yet to make it to the 410 area. Looking to change that this saturday. Anyone have any suggestions for fun, ~20ish mile loops with ranger creek and have a trail map showing the route? Or better yet, anyone interested in riding there on saturday?

    If you haven't already, take a look over this: Trail:Ranger Creek - Evergreen Trail Guide

    There is a map there showing a sample route. You have a couple options - Ranger out and back; up Corral Pass and then down Ranger; up Ranger and down Palisades. You can add in White River to start off any of those options, and add in Skookum as a bonus to finish it off.

    I'd go with you if I didn't already have plans. (BTW, did you already post on NW Outings? Seems familiar...)

    This was the route I was recommended my first time, and it was amazing:

    Park right on 410 where this map says "15.88 miles". I think there's a little sign there announcing the trailhead too. Works out great because you come down Palisades and you're right at the car. Plus White River is a nice easy, scenic warm up before you get to the Corral Pass climb. The only tricky part for us was the Noble Knob turn off, which was missing a sign. Only took us a second to realize we missed the right turn.

    Fun ride though, the upper part of Palisades is ripping fast, and the bottom is these crazy switchbacks you have to see to believe.

    When we rode it last Friday there was one patch of snow, maybe 100 feet long that we had to dismount and push through. Even that may be mostly gone by now.
