    It's that time of year again. i'm thinking "new" Gold Creek parking lot at 9 o'clock. Figure go up for a loop, then the hard cores can stick around for a side loop at the soon to be deceased tin mine trail.

    Everyone's invited, curious how it is? Think Tiger Mt. in amount of length, climbing and technical difficulty.

    Far, unless you want to take a ferry. GM is just North West of Bremerton.

    Is the new gold creek lot in the same spot as the old gold creek lot?

    it's northwest of Bremerton, if it's a clear day you can see Seattle from the Vista from across the Puget Sound. Pretty cool, but i'm not sure if it's cool enough to warrant that much travel. If you can find some B-ham people to chip in on gas i'd say go for it though, the trails will be of your liking especially if the weather isn't totally bogus. Alot of puddles but the soil is really solid for the most part so not much mud at all.

    Is there a ferry that goes across from Whidbey? Might be the way to go if your goin, or steal a boat and we'll pick you up next to Chico Way.:)

    It's about a quarter mile south of the old parking lot. All brand new with an outhouse and everything you can't miss it.

    i hope you can make it, it'll be good to share the trail with a psycho yet again!

    Thanks again for the 16 or so miles of fun. Day was great with sunny skies, great trail conditions, new routes, blah blah blah...

    Hope some of what we found today will be there a while.
