Intermediate MTB: TumaloR/UpperWhoops/Sector16/Skyliner
June 25, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
This ride starts at Skyliner Sno-park. We’ll take our time on the ride up Tumalo Ridge Trail first, which is most of the climbing. There are some sections to walk and some short punchy climbs. After that we ride through some manzanitas with great views of the mountains.
Then we’ll take a forest road for 2 miles to the Swede shelter. The forest road is another climb and it’s not particularly “fun” … but it’s the only way to get to the other side. So we’ll stop at Swede shelter for a bite and water break. Then the real fun begins as we head down the Sector 16 trail to the Shooting Star Shelter, where we’ll take another quick break.
Then it’s mostly downhill back to Skyliner Sno-park. Upper Whoops is all downhill. We’ll drop out at the “Bench” before heading down Skyliner Trail back to the start.
Total ride is about 13 miles with 1361 ft of elevation gain. It’s rated intermediate because of the climbing.
