Leo,

There's trails right down the street from where you're staying. Most of the time they're referred to as Lake Sawyer, but others refer to them as Black Diamond since they're a mile from the town. These trails are about 10 minutes from Maple Valley and are rolly and tight/twisty. I was just out there on Sunday and they were in great shape.....they drain well so they're still rideable when things get wet.

Black Diamond has a shop with rentals if you don't bring your bike. They're cool guys and can get you a map if you're not riding with a local. Those trails are a labrynth.....and most aren't signed.

Beyond that, there's Tower of Power (Renton), Tokul East / West, Griffin Creek (Fall City), Tolt McDonald (Carnation) and several other areas that are within 1/2 hour of Maple Valley.

Chers,
EB

Or... you can visit bbtc.org and head into the Recreation page for a peek at their ride calendar.
You can also sign up to their groups.yahoo.com listserve (bbtcmembers) and ask as many questions as you like...
