    yall didna hear this from nobody. got that
    go past turtle town and keep goin along the ridge., itll get you to that sooper expensive place (useta be the "other" side of bullfrog). itll even take you to cle elum lake, but im guessin the waters too high to drive on the beach from that, you can find your way to roslyn. youre on your own for driving thru the cade of the sun

    watch out for booby traps.
    not so much the easton locals, but my bruddah in law claims that ona them hippy dippy types was booby trappin that backway in. they finally caught him supposedly, but this may just be urban legend

    No need to drive on the beach - there is a bridge now, it was still under construction last year so no gate, not sure about right now. I was able to go from Snoqualmie all the way to Cle Elum on dirt last year....

    Been looking into that and am curious how you got from the truck stop any farther East? That bridge is done with some big government signs and large gate. Not sure if the sniper tower has been set up yet.....

    My mistake... I know East of Snoqualmie pass well. I was thinking maybe you were implying from the town of Snoqualmie. I have this idea of riding the I-90 corridor on backroads or single track, Fs Roads etc.... from Bellevue to Vantage without having to use the freeway. I know you are quite the adventurer

    Yes, wide open from GW to Little Naches. Not sure about GW to Stampede, but it must be close.

    ya. i thought snoqualmie too.
    if you were ballsy enough, you could jump on the iron horse trail. but thats a good way to piss alot of people off. theoretically, you could go up to 38 and find the correct road thatll get you onto watershed property and thatll get you to lester (the y before lester and f.s.). last time i was up there, it was only a berm.
    heck, go upta ceder falls and sneek in there. no dont do it

    99.9% snow free! Went thru from I-90 to 410 on Sunday, Jun 24. Little bit of bike pushing to get thru some patches of snow but those will be even easier in the next few weeks. Quite a bit of loose gravel in places, particularly up to Stampede Pass.

    Was up there yesterday also. Didn't drop all the way down to the 52 road, only about a half mile short. Some minor patches of snow over the tip top, but nothing you needed to stop or barely slow down for. Those will almost certainly be gone by this weekend.

    cabin creek road i believe out of easton, for 3 miles or so;bascically, just follow the road. theres a sno park back there. theres a bridge out (its been out for a bit) the crossing is downstream of it, you may have to look for it. that takes you to forest road 41 i think it is. then thatll take to a T. right to up over tacoma pass, straight is continuation of cabin creek i thinks. you can also follow the "main" road up into the vastness of wilderness

    Is the creek crossing big bike friendly? I'm thinking of heading out that way on my 12GSA with some camping gear and I'll be alone so don't want to get in over my head in the water.
