Crank Sisters Intermediate Ride at Raging River


Intermediate ride at Raging River, moderate pace, for anyone who identifies as female. Weather forecast says possibly some showers & in the 50s, so maybe bring a raincoat & extra gloves in your pack. DISCOVER PASS needed for the main parking lot.
Trails: New route for me, and should be fun! Probably about ~13 miles, ~2,000 feet of climging, ~3-4 hours on the trail. Proposed trails: Upward Mobility--> Raging Ridge--> Canyon Creek DH--> Raging Tiger--> Poppin' Tops Lower--> Flow State Upper--> Flow State Lower
You do not need to be a fast climber as we'll stop for breaks & regroup as needed, but please be ready to climb at least 6 miles on the trail. Check the Evergreen website & Trail Forks for more info about the area. If you have questions or concerns, text me anytime to touch base.
Location:Raging River, Exit 27 off Highway 90
DIRECTIONS: Take I-90 to Exit 27. Turn on to Winery Road and either park here or continue to the main parking lot (1/4 mile from I-90). Meet by the bathroom & trail head sign at the Raging River Parking Lot at 9:00 am. DISCOVER PASS is required to park in the main parking lot.
