The 3.1-mile Lake Padden singletrack loop is a sharp contrast to the wide, flat loop around the lake. It is short in length but not recommended for true beginners. The ride is appropriate for more advanced riders, but will be a bit brief. The route starts on a gentle climb before the hard stuff comes. It meanders on good-quality trails through Douglas fir - and western red cedar- dominated landscape, along with hemlock, alder, and vine maple. Don't let your mind wander too far, though, because the rooty, technical terrain demands your attention.
