I did look up the coordinates: 47.539455,-121.742949 on google maps but, cant tell the rout but, would be fun to discover where it goes in person. That is half the fun after all.

Yea, it''s a maze of roads on the map, but a single, easy to follow road in person. The marker shows where the logging road starts, from there, ya simply follow it!

I think you will be fine. Sounds like it is more of a drive than any thing.

Haha, so true. I was up there a few days ago, got to the deep snow, managed to get half my Jeep in one rut and the other half in two feet of fresh snow. Had to have a massive, beefy Chevy pull me out. Not a proud moment for my Jeep

That looks like Red Bridge on Mountain Loop in the Mt Baker Snoqualmie National Forest. If so that make that the south fork Stillaguamish River.

It's the North fork of the Snoqualmie river. 25 or so miles north, smack dab in between Snoqualmie and North Bend.

If you paste these coordinates into Google Maps, I've marked the start of the forest road, and from there you just follow it, all the roads that veer off are all gated and locked, so don't worry about getting lost. If ya got a shotgun, bring it on out, plenty of places to shoot, as well as camp. There are weirdos out in North Bend though
I just did that trail today for my daughter's first "off roading" experience at 17-months-old. It's a mellow little trail, but we did get to cross a stream, slide in a bunch of mud, and traverse LOTS of virgin snow. Daddy even had to get out of the jeep to remove a tree limb... which seemed to increase my rating on the "badassometer" in the eyes of my wife and daughter ;-)

We spent about 5 hours going up there and coming down. Defiantly a fun day out. Highly recommended for a stock jeep and a novice driver such as myself.

Here's a little bit of video from the middle of the trail. Nothing exciting, but I thought I'd share. (Excuse the baby noises)
