Red Top Mountain, XC-3
Steve Ghan, email@example.com
We start near the old Mineral Springs Resort and follow a groomed route about 3 miles through thin forest along Blue Creek, and then follow snowmobile tracks up a second road toward if not to the summit of Red Top Mountain. The reward for climbing 2600 feet in 8 miles is expansive views of Table Mountain the Stuart Range for lunch, followed by a delightful glide down the steady grade to the highway. We’ll stop at the Little Yellow Church Cafe in Ellensburg on the way home for a bite to eat.
