South Sound Runs!

Im looking to make a run around Mt Rainer on Sunday, Aug. 1st. The route is the only route you can take on pavement around the volcano.
Itll run through grid farming towns until it hits the mountain passes, where the evergreen forests and rivers and waterfalls start to show. The elevation is up to 5400+ feet.

Ill start in Enumclaw WA, and take the south route off HWY 410 to HWY 162 through Orting to Elbe, then cut east through Ashford and up to Paradise until I hit HWY 123. Then join 410 back to Enumclaw.

The run is about 150mi. 3.5 hours. estimated. Will take longer with stops to rest my arse, eat and and fuel.

If anyone is interested, let me know and we can meet in Enumclaw.

Im on a Kawa Z400.

I trust that you mean Sunday September 1st.

A few pointers:
  • Leave early as possible to avoid the heavy traffic.
  • Fuel up in Elbe, as, other than the price gouger station in Ashford, the nest Fuel will be 105 miles away.
  • There is a $25.00/bike entrance fee for the park.
  • Consider packing some comfortable shoes so that you can walk a bit of the trails at Paradise.
  • You might want to post up a meeting place and time.
  • Have fun.


I'd love to come along, but I will be hoofing around on Mt Adams this weekend.
