The Burn trail ends abruptly due to logging.

The first trail to the actual trail system is called IAB (Its A Bitch). IAB does live up to its name as you Bike/Hike 1 mile and gain 500ft, but once at the top there is no more big climbs, the trail are all rolling fun, technical.  There are a few great views of the Snoqualmie Valley from up top at Tolt, but most of the trails are classic western Washington lowland forests - ferns, cedar, fir, roots, etc.

Can hold a few big puddles in the wet months, but pretty much rideable year-round.

I LOVE the winding trails at Tolt. There are miles of nice cross country trails with roots, logs and tight turns. We spent several hours at Tolt today and didn't find any standing water or mud despite the recent rain. The drainage is awesome. HOWEVER, we also spent half of our ride doing trail maintanence - clearing downed storm debris and sawing small trees that have come down across th...

Trails and landmarks

Went back to do the South trails and explore the primative roads. I really enjoyed the variety of trails that are south of the clear cut. I could have used a machetee  to clear some overgrowth but the trails were great. Have some fun here soon!  :-) Here is the track and pics Read more

North Track and clear cut
22 | Jul | '15
Went there to check out the trails and to see the clear cutting firsthand. There is still plenty for you to ride and take advantage of, and no reason to avoid the park if you were doing that. I only had time to do the North half of the park and so the South will be saved for my next visit. This park is still a nice quiet place for good workout! I have pictures of the landmarks, signs, and scenery... Read more

This is just an update on trails that no longer exsist because of the clear cutting at Told McDonald.  This is not a comprehensive list but reflects what I found when trying to ride my favorite loop. Most of the center section of trails between the North Rd and South Rd. are gone Here are the trails that I could not find: Oxbow, Mystery, Babe's Marine, Pearl, Cloverleaf, The Burn, Schae...

Rode these trails for the first time Sunday.  These trails here were a twisty tight mass of rooty goodness.  Not as technical as Cuss Hollow at Duthie but still quite enjoyable. IAB is very aptly named; definitely a work out getting up.  To me this place has a strong forest woods feel.  In some places there are lots of leaves down so had to be careful in those places because th...

Road Tolt MacDonald today. Nice ride. First time riding here. Per advisement road the perimiter roads first - got a feel for the layout. Yes, IAB is tough, but not too bad in terms of grunt. I was able to ride about 2/3rds of it. So... what is up with the danger tape markers across certain trails? I presume these are to keep folks out of the logging areas? Feels like most of the inner trails betwe... Read more
