    Been looking at this today on Bing Maps and it looks like a connected series of roads. Anyone know if this is actually a passable route?

    Looks best if you select "Birds Eye" in the nav atop the map...

    Looks like it could be a nice ride out and back towards Duval, starting off the Steven's Pass Hwy in Gold Bar.

    ...if it's actually passable all the way through...

    I spotted what looks like a bridge over a gorge on the Duvall end of the run, but can't really tell.

    Thoughts?

    Nope - roads might connect, but all of that state land out there (Marckworth State Forest) is gated at both ends of Stossel Creek road. The Tolt watershed is closed off to motorized traffic as well. You might be able to get part way up out of Gold Bar, but I imagine you'll find yourself at a dead end before you get too far.

    It does look like a nice ride, but unfortunately the access from the Duvall side has been closed for a few years now.

    Well...that blows...

    Back to the maps I guess...

    Thanks for clarifying, though. Just saved me some head scratching in the forest. :)
