    ... how much fun the Wildcat trail is at Green Mountain. :monkeydance:

    Me and a buddy went out there this weekend. The climb was a little worse than I remember, but the trail down was better than I remember. Trail conditions were perfect.. and the berms were beautiful.

    Here are a couple of pics... sorry about no action shots... too much fun to be had.

    It really is a great area. We rode the fireroads up and came down from the Green Mtn Vista on Wildcat. I think it's about 6 miles up and almost 6 miles down. If you want to make a FULL day out of it, you can climb from the Wildcat trailhead side then drop down Gold Creek, climb back up to the summit and come down the Wildcat trail.

    Here's a link to a pretty current map - http://www.dnr.wa.gov/dataandmaps/maps/pdf/green_08_full.pdf

    There is a larger map in the corner that shows where it is.

    Just look up Jewell Park, WA on Google Maps. The parking area is a little further to the west on NW Holly Rd.

    It took us about 2 hours RT from the parking lot... not a whole lot of stopping, but not going at a breakneck pace either.
