Map includes Dalles Ridge Trail 1173, Deep Creek Trail 1196, Noble Knob Trail 1184, Palisades Trail 1198, Ranger Creek Trail 1197, White River Trail 1199 Mountain Biking and Hiking Trails.

TH: From the SR410 TH, go left onto Palisades Tr1198 and ride .1mi to White River Cutoff Tr1199.01, which leads to White Rvr Tr1199.

1.2mi: Go past the Buck Cr Tr1169/Snoquera Falls Tr1167 intersection. The trail turns to doubletrack near Camp Shepard, with a detour trail (look for the 'Trail' sign), which wanders above Camp Shepard. Pass the Moss Lake Nature Trail. White Rvr Tr1199 approaches SR410 at 2.6mi. Go past the Ranger Cr Tr1197 intersection at 2.9mi and the Deep Cr Tr1196 intersection at 4.4mi, then proceed to FR7174.

4.9mi: Go left on FR7174 and grind on up to Corral Pass.

10.2mi: Was that mountain biking? Not really, but go left at the T intersection, then right onto Noble Knob Tr1184 and let the gravel road be a distant memory.

11.3mi: Go right at the T and ride on to Mutton Mountain, then pass the Deep Cr Tr1196 intersection at 12.4mi.

13.6mi: Go left at the intersection with Dalles Ridge Tr1173, or continue .5mi to the Noble Knob summit. This is the highest elevation of the ride (5950') and Noble Knob Tr1184 defines the edge of the Norse Peak wilderness so do not take any trails to the right. Dalles Ridge Tr1173 covers rough, uneven ridgeline terrain.

14.8mi: Go left onto Ranger Cr Tr1197 and navigate steep switchbacks to the intersection with Palisades Tr1198, just past the log shelter. Go around the log shelter and then go right at the fork.

16.7mi: Ride along a ridge to Little Ranger Peak, then begin the Palisades traverse, winding along near the cliff face. The first of several great views is at 17.1mi and the terrain is rough enough that sightseeing should be done with feet on the ground.

18.7mi: Cross the wooden bridge above Snoquera Falls, then go across a clearcut and re-enter the forest.

19.5mi: Last great viewpoint, followed by increasingly intense switchbacks which culminate in the 'chute' at 21.3mi. Hike a bike down the stairs and .5mi of rocky switchbacks, then go to the TH.
