Christoff Tr1171 is the dropout from Divide Tr1172, a 7.6mi subalpine ridgeline ride which can be extended with Grass Mountain Tr1170.
White River Trails
About 1.5hrs from downtown Seattle, the White River area trails are extremely popular...and happen to also cover some great terrain.
Skookum Flats Tr1194 can be ridden nearly all year, although the glacial water flow of the White River demands some thermal protection most of the year. The higher elevation trails become available when the snow melts (April-July).
Christoff Tr1171 descends 2500' over 2mi, a 23% grade which would be difficult for most riders to climb, so the suggested ride is a Divide Tr1172 to Mule Springs OAB.
This can be extended by pathfinding further along Grass Mt Tr1170 as far as possible.
Shuttle option: A Divide Tr1172 to Christoff Tr1171 shuttle can create a wild 7.3mi downhill ride.
Divide Tr1172 has several .5mi ascents which are 25% grade, short enough sprints for strong riders to climb.
Grass Mountain Tr1170 traverses the Huckleberry and Grass Mountain ridges.
Logging largely wiped out the trail but hearty pathfinders seek such challenges. The Area map shows most of the doubletrack which crosses the trail, and a GPS is strongly suggested for this ride.
Access to the western TH is shown, using West Twin Creek Road, but most riders would use Grass Mountain Tr1170 to extend a Divide Tr1172 OAB ride.
Area Hiking: Kelly Butte Tr1031 is a popular (June-September) hiking trail, easily accessible from FR7030, with a more adventurous ascent to the Kelly Butte Lookout from FR54, passing rock towers and outcroppings along the way.
Frog Mountain Tr1180 is open to biking but at 2.3mi, is far too short to be of use. Carbon Tr1179, Summit Lake Tr1177 and Clearwater Tr1178 used to be open to bikes and was a popular loop, but now these Clearwater Wilderness trail are only available to hiking.
FR7810 provides access to the northern Mount Rainier entrance, with a ranger station near the Ipsut Creek CG. FR7550 leads to a Northern Loop spur, alongside the West Fork White River.
Expect heavy hiker traffic on all the trails nearest the Carbon Glacier road. Venture to the east side of Mount Rainier for more secluded hiking.
Wonderland Trail is 93mi and circumnavigates Mount Rainier, crossing varied terrain, from lowland forests to high alpine.
For much more information, check out the Mount Rainier National Park Trail guide, which includes descriptions of all trails and a variety of maps.
