    I'm thinking over weekend and I don't have any knobs on the bike. Have not been up there and cross over in at least 20 years.

    I rode it twice last year. Knobs were nice but not necessary. Looking forward to hearing how it looks now.

    went up over stampede to greenwater. saw a few bikes.
    beat the oil train headin east. i coudnt get my phone back on before the first engine got to me. had to lay 'er down by the big trestle. came i a little hot around a corner. and a shot of rainier. and a little medicine to heal my wound. after getting the c/s sprocket cover off, i was able to upshift again and the rest of the ride was uneventful.
    them gravel roads and overinflated tires make for a hairy ride

    I did it on Saturday but I got loss 4 times. I did exit through NF111 thanks to a nice guy in a wrangler with his family though. I did get out by Little Naches dr, close to Cliffdell.

    It would be great if someone shares more exact directions to do it again and right!

    River cross from Easton is safe but it was still a PITA as the sand is lose. Couple of washouts as well, and unfortunately it was smokey so I couldn't had a view of Mt Rainier.

    thanks @tomasv. Did search in all your posts but I only found the attached one from another inmate. Looks great but it doesn't starts from Easton/FS41.

    Also, as a next step: any good rides from 410 towards Mt Rainier for even better views?

    Wow, you had quite the adventure @tomasv, sorry to hear that.

    Sounds like you ended up hitting some challenging 4x4 trail, but I don;t think from what I have seen that you were on the Naches Trail. I ride that trail regularly and love it, and though definitely a workout on the big twins, it;s definitely manageable. It is much harder when wet and muddy, but now is bone dry. This year I rode it on opening day (July 15) along with a buddy on a 990 and it was fun. The trail is definitely easier going W to E, i.e coming from greenwater, because of two steep sections that are ok downhill but require serious commitment going up.

    @tomasv and @JONK, I'm impressed by sheer number of tracks you guys have collected in the area - I have a whole bunch, but not nearly as many :) I see you have marked the blowout mt trails, but I have only done them on the dirt bike, have not dared going up there with the big twin. I have done a few times a big loop Stampede-Greenwater-Naches Pass-Whistling Jack-Manastash Ridge-Cle elum, it's a long ass day, but well worth it. Happy to share the tracks if you want.

    I've run a ton up in the area but some of my tracks are drawn in using software so sometimes you plan out a route and SURPRISE - road dead ends or doesn't exist!

    I haven't made Blowout or Goat on my KTM and each time I've tried I think I avg about 2mph :muutt Gonna leave those for the big kids
