Rising above the Strait of Juan de Fuca, these moderate trails are popular among the locals. There are three main loops that will give you a great workout and are a lot of fun to ride. You can complete the course in a couple of hours, enjoy spectacular views of the strait, and get some incredibly fast singletrack riding through the forest. Most of the intersections are very well marked, and the Department of Natural Resources has posted miniature trail map signs at key junctions. Even with the logging that goes on there from time to time, you‘ll have a tough time getting lost. The single track is in good condition, and the road climbs are moderately tough.

Came in from the Blake diamond rd, had to walk up a gravel road for maybe 5 minutes, ugh. Found the trail but it seemed more suited for motorcycles. Going to see if I can enter from walking horse lane next. -Jesse
