View of the Skyliners Sno-Park TH, so check the map or ask a rider. Go right and follow the doubletrack for 1.3mi. Bear left at the fork and the trail turns to singletrack. Expect hikers on this easily accessed trail section.
2.3mi: Cross the south fork of the Tumalo Creek then go right onto South Fork Tr25. At the Tumalo Falls TH

5.2mi: Cross the middle fork of Tumalo Creek and tackle the final ascent to Swampy Lake Tr23, the steepest section of this ride.
6.3mi: Go left onto Swampy Lake Tr23 and ascend .3mi around the ridge, the ride summit. Cross the middle fork of Tumalo Creek at 6.7mi and Spring Creek at 8.4mi as the trail drops off several ridgelines in a wild descent.
9.1mi: Pass the Bridge Creek 4way intersection, then cross Bridge Creek. Pass South Fork Tr25 and creek on the left at 9.9mi, then ascend 600' to Swampy Lakes, through a series of switchbacks (noting why mid-ride ascents are not so great).
