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.
