Trail Sister’s Guided Falls Creek Ride Led By Metropolis Adventure Team – 9/17

September 17, 2023 @ 9:00 am 4:00 pm

Join NWTA’s Trail Sister’s & Metropolis Adventure Team for a guided ride on the spectacular Falls Creek trail.

Join the Trail Sisters of Metropolis Adventure Team for a day in the Gifford Pinchot to experience this gem of a Washington trail. We will shuttle to Oldman Pass, connecting to McLellen Meadows and then to Falls Creek Trail for a partial loop. We divide into groups based on ability, fitness, and riding goals. All groups will have the opportunity to session technical parts of the climbs and descents. There are many great snacking spots with a view, as well as some geological features unique to the Gifford Pinchot. Bring your sense of adventure and join us for a day on the trail! 

*Please assess your riding skills honestly. This ride requires fitness and technical skills. The trails we will ride are rated blue on Trailforks. We want everyone to be safe and have a good time. Feel free to reach out and inquire whether this will be a good fit for you!
