The new sign has no mention of Klone Peak

North Tommy Trail 1425 to Klone Peak Trail

In about 1 mile there is a major unmarked trail to the left up hill. This is trail to Klone Peak

Left uphill to Klone Peak (6834 feet).

The Klone Peak elevation sign may be missing. You will know you are at the top because there is a short rock wall on the top and it is the highest point around.

Double back down on Klone Peak Trail to North Tommy Trail 1425

At intersection of Klone Peak Trail and North Tommy Trail 1425 you are now back at North Tommy Trail at the same point you left it to go to Klone Peak.

South Tommy Trail 1423 sign has been replaced with a sign reading EXPERT RIDERS ONLY (This is the only sign with such wording on our course)

*Caution: The next good water supply is 14 miles at Cougar Creek one mile prior to Mad River

Fill up at the Enitat River or Tommy Creek about a mile after the Enitat to have enough water for this section

South Tommy Trail 1423 to Tyee Ridge Trail 1415

This is a very hard climb from 2000 ft. to 6800 ft. in about 6 miles

A false top is at about 4 miles so don’t be fooled; you still have a long climb ahead

At the highest point of the climb approximately ½ mile from 1415 the trail starts down hill

Go left onto trail 1415, there is a new sign

Left on Tyee Ridge Trail 1415 to Billy Creek Trail 1416

This sign at 1416 has been hard to see at times because the trail is very rough and runners are looking down while the natural curve of the trail takes you on to 1416 without seeing the sign.

Right on Billy Creek Trail 1416 to Mad River Trail 1409

Caution: You will cross several roads that do not show up on your map. These are fire service roads cut during the fires several years ago.

The trail continues across the road slightly to the right in one case and to the left in another.

You will not run on the road for more than a few yards in both cases

One mile prior to Mad River Trail 1409 you will cross Cougar Creek. This is right at the bottom of the very steep down hill.

This is not Mad River. Continue on 1416 across the creek on the only trail leaving the crossing to 1409 one mile ahead.

Right on Mad River Trail 1409 to Maverick Saddle and Mad Lake Trail 1409.1
