Trail Sister’s Guided Falls Creek with Team Metropolis – 9/18

September 18 @ 9:00 am 4:00 pm

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

About this event

Join the femmes of Team Metropolis 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, dividing into two groups based on ability and fitness. Both groups will have the opportunity to session technical parts of the climbs and descents. There are many great snacking spots with a view. We might even stop to enjoy some of the lava tubes off the trail. Bring your sense of adventure and join us for a day on the trail! 

This Intermediate to Advanced skill level ride is for Trail Sisters- (cis & trans) and non-binary. It is 23 miles and 1500 feet of technical and punchy climbing; descending is technical with roots and rocks and some exposure; expect to be on the trail for 5 hours.
