Foothills Trails provides fun, roller-coaster, intermediate-level mountain biking with swooping turns and a mile-long fast final descent, all close to town. In other words, do it for the riding- this is mountain biking for mountain biking's sake. The trails are in second-growth woods with some fern- and salal-covered forest floor. They're hard-packed with some roots and ruts to negotiate. Motorcycle usage is apparent in spots, but the trails are in good shape overall. The 6.8-mile loop won't take a lot of time- maybe an hour to an hour and a half- but if you want to extend the ride, do it again in another configuration.
