Eek ISO technical double track

I'm looking for a technical/difficult rated trail in the cascades that my 1200GS can take me on a date.
Something north to south of Seattle or the Olympics. Something similar to the Bethel Ridge and Umtanum Ridge sections of the WABDR. Shelton to Quinault has a intermediate trail but looking for something more challenging. What u got bro?

Have you looked at Capital Forest? I have never been, but if it's anything like Tahuya or Walker Valley, you might be able to find a combination of jeep roads that would get you what you want.

The Shelton thing, I assume you are talking fs 23 out of skokomish delta, it's a fun day ride out and back, and lots of opportunities to find spurs consisting of harder stuff. There is a road that starts as a right-hand turn off the east side of wynoochee lake and and circles clokwise back to 23. Very challenging and somewhat brushed in in places, look at the forest mvum map for numbers.

Your're not that far from naches pass jeep trail, but don't do that alone on a gs.

Route #10 from the TT rally had some pretty good technical stuff that was a serious challenge on the 1200GS (probably moreso because I had Heidenaus mounted). Of course, it's a ways away over Stevens Pass out in Plain.

Got turned around by snow and goo trying to get up and over Naches a month ago. It looked like it would have been a blast.
