Wow, this was so fun. Rented bikes at the ski lodge. The staff was fun and very helpful. We arrived at the trail head to find a 2 mile tunnel ride, it was very dark in the tunnel. We needed the bike headlights to see...More

First time at this very diverse delightful trail. Starting off with very dark mile long tunnel which was chilly as can be. Then hot as blazes time, then back in a cool tunnel. Vistas were breathtaking and trestles were high and scary.

It appeared most folks only rode down the trail. We went down and back up. It was far less crowded going back up. The tunnels were a lot of fun. We found them completely safe. I have no idea how some people found the water...More

We are experienced cyclists with decades of self-supported long distance bicycle touring across the USA and Europe. This is a highly recommended trail riding experience with a couple of warnings. First, we would not ride the first long tunnel (1.67 miles) again under any circumstances....More

This ride was a wonderful experience! We had two couples and six children ranging in age from 7 to 14 years old. All had an excellent experience. Would definitely use a high-powered light due to the darkness of the tunnels. Would either go early in...More

My friend and I rode the trail on 7/2/18, as a last minute fill-in venture when weather thwarted our original plans. The weather was cloudy, about 60 degrees and a bit windy, still an enjoyable ride with a sweatshirt and long pants. We rented bikes,...More

We rode the trail 6/25/2018. Got our tickets at Exit 0 (if you have cash and don't need to rent a light you can get the ticket at the trailhead) and went to the trail head. Started out with the 1.66 mile tunnel. It was...More

We rode this trail in Mid June - this is truly one of the best things to do in the NW! Come prepared with a bike (doesn't need to be a fancy one), helmet, light. The tunnels are dark, cool, and sometimes drip water -...More

While the trestles are indeed high, the width is substantial and all have railings. That gives the option of sticking to the middle of the trail if height is an issue. My sister-in-law has a fear of heights and biked the... More
