Location: Intersection of 356th Dr and the Snoqualmie Valley Trail.

Getting there: Take I-90 East to Exti 22 Preston/Fall City. Follow Rt. 203 4 miles to Fall City, follow signs for Rt. 202 (basically turn right at the river and another right, the first on the round about), go 1 mile and turn left onto 356th Dr. The parking lots are 1/3 of a mile up.
There are other options for parking but be sure to check the Evergreen website since access has changed. Some access points are on private land as is certain sections of trail. Know where you should be and know it well. This is a great area to ride and we need to keep the owners happy. Thanks.

Current Conditions: March 4, 2011. Things are pretty wet and muddy. There is not running water on any trails but lots of standing water. Traction was surprisingly good despite the mud. The mud made the riding challenging but not impossible.

What to expect:
The trails are very much like the ones at Tolt McDonald, very tight, and loaded with roots and holes. Rhythm is hard to find and you must stay on top of your game. There are trails for the XC racer all the way to the DH rider looking to hone his/her skills.

Lower trails in western-most part are flat and fairly easy. Have very muddy spots after rain. Rest of the area dries out quite well; upper trails are more technical but still XC trails, not downhilling trails.
Options to connect to Griffin Creek area (via SVT, 3+ mi) and Tokul East (via SVT or internal roads) as well; riding both Tokul West and East gives a 22-25mi loop. -Evergreen Bike

NOTE: I’m trying out this new formate for trail reviews.  I’m hoping it’s cleaner and easier to find what your looking for.  If I’m missing something or you have suggestions let’s hear them.  Thanks.
