The map for this is wrong in one section. If you're going clockwise, once you get off Preston Railroad Grade don't follow the provided gps track. It takes you down into a mess of blowdowns and the 'trail' disappears. Stay on the road, get on the Silent Swamps trail (which wasn't accurately shown on AllTrails either.. I ended up using Backcountry Navigator to find my way through), then hook up with the Joyride trail, and follow that down to the Northwest Timber Trail.

I didn't get any views of Rainier as posted in the photos which was one reason why I came out here in the first place, kind of a bummer. I imagine people were going up the East Tiger Summit trail, just know it's not part of 'this' trail without a detour.. I wish I'd known that. The views from the Northwest Timber Trail were pretty good though.

I imagine this trail is more thrilling on a bike. On foot it was just okay. There's much better trails in this area.

Be prepared to yield to many, many cyclists. It's not a particularly amazing hike, so unless you plan on mountain biking I would save your time and sorry be there gas going somewhere else.
