The trail for mountain bike is open from spring through fall and is suitable for all skill levels, but a good physical condition is important.

The road is dirt and gravel, in a good condition, but as you ride higher, it gets steeper. At some parts of the trail, there are no trees and you can enjoy some amazing views of the Cascade Mountains and Glacier Peak. Don’t forget to take with you water, energy snacks, a map and a compass.
