8/12 route help
My cousin and i are meeting in puyallup tomorrow around 1:30. We want to ride around the mt Rainier area but my only experience out there is driving to crystal. I think we want to do a loop around the mt or maybe up 410 a ways. Anyone is welcome to join but we r not racers!
Give us some ideas!

If I didn't have a wedding (not mine ) I'd go along as a guide, but since I can't, here is what I would do.

Looks good! Its always a crap shoot with Google maps if a road is actually a road and not some logging trail...

Some time i want to ride to the highest drivable point in Washington....

We might go across 410 to the first town over the pass then back
..

Would like ti ride with you some time tex

What about the 706? Is that a good road?
Is that part of the park where you'd have to pay to ride through?

If you are heading over the pass to a place to snack and coffee it's most likely going to be Whistling Jack Lodge.

The transit time from Google will be fairly accurate on a Sunday afternoon, because you will be dealing with returning weekenders. Neither a good thing nor a bad thing, just a fact of life when riding in the Cascades on a Sunday afternoon.

If the bride today was not such a good friend of both mine and Admiral Martha I really would like to tag along this afternoon. Don't worry, WaGigKPN, we shall go forth and terrorize small towns together some day. I foresee a call for a ride to Wynoochee for a Saturday ride sometime soon.

BTW: The road through the park, AKA Stevens Canyon, is best done on a weekday. It's a great ride with lots of sweeping vistas, but traffic and rubberneckers can really screw up the enjoyment.
