Our Saturday ride in the rain outside of Enumclaw, WA
 
We had originally planned on going to Taylor Mountain but at the last minute decided to go the extra distance here and finish digitizing the Mount Baldy trail system they we started on last year. So with a thermos full of hot tea we ventured out into the rain!
We thought wed have the trails to ourselves but it seems that Seattlites are a hearty bunch and we ran across more than a handful of people!

The trails here are, remarkably enough, fairly level, once you get over the top of Mnt Baldy! On this trip we also found the link between the Mount Baldy and Mud Mountain trails. If you look at the map the trails here interconnect with a maze of logging roads, so be prepared to spend time on gravel in between the trails.
All and all I like this set of trails for a conditioning ride (or hike!). The trails are pretty well maintained and marked. Parking is excellent at both trailheads.

That is very nifty! Yes, we went past the tiny lake under the power lines. Is it true that the lake has goldfish in it? Some of the oldtimers from our BCHW chapter have said there's a lake at Baldy that is filled with goldfish.

BTW- you'll see a new trail map at the Baldy Kiosk soon. We're putting a 3x4 foot color map of the trails up.
