Trail Reports

  • Marc Fortier June 24, 2018 at 8:23 pmWhat a weird little trail. Short but brutal climb to the peak. Many switchbacks build anticipation for a glorious view, but then you start going down and hit deadfall and no view :( But park your bike at the height of the trail, and scramble up 100 feet to a clearing with a great view. Trail needs a good raking, as it is carpeted with debris which impedes your progress.

Trail Description

Swamp Peak Trail connects Gordan Peak Trail along the NW side of the Pyramid Epic Loop.

We have not ridden this trail as it’s not part of the Pyramid Loop and it eventually heads into wilderness, so it is only an out-and-back ride.

Some work was done, mostly by SATA folk during the last OTTA / Trans-Cascadia Campout. Once we are able to check this trail out we will update this description and add some photos. So many trails! So little time!

Before heading out, please take a minute to look at the Rules of the Trail.
