The Olallie State Park trail up to Mount Washington is currently being planned by Washington State Parks. This phase will be an out-and-back up to Mount Washington, and trail mileage could be between 5 and 7 miles each way.
State Parks has run into more issues in developing a detailed trail design that they can use to put the project out to bid. The project has again been delayed. Justin, Jon, and Doug W are meeting with the Director of State Parks in March '08 to put try and sort out these ongoing issues.
Take Exit 32 and head south to Rattlesnake lake. At the end of the road, park at one lots and find a sign that points you to the Iron Horse Trail. From there, ride about 1 mile east, at which point Cedar Butte will be on your right.
The trail will begin by climbing up Cedar Butte, then it will traverse that saddle that connects to Mount Washington. At that point the trail will climb Mount Washington on a road-to-trail conversion. Once the trail reaches the northeast flank of Mount Washington, the trail will end (but it will be connected to old logging roads).
