Located off Willows Road behind various office parks, the trail is cut through a dense forest of Douglas fir, big-leaf maple, alder, cedar, and a barricade of blackberry bushes. The trails ride up and down through the forest, with transitions and switchbacks that are too steep and too sharp for most riders to navigate. One section of smooth singletrack is a blast, but to accumulate any mileage the loop must be completed at least three or four times. By then most riders will want a little variety. Still, a short trek through the Fjords is better than not riding at all. Trail surface: Singletrack.

I moved to the area recently and was glad to find a little single track in my backyard. There's a lot more to this area than the guide shows. The biggest thing that it misses is the fast fun start off of 100th. Head down 100th from 132nd, follow it around to the right; It dead ends at an old gun range. Just before the driveway to the gun range there is a single track heading down to the left. Head down there; You'll eventually come out on a wider single track, head right for a few feet, and the trail picks up again to the left. This is where you'll start climbing up and down the fjords. ALWAYS STAY LEFT. Any right hand turn will take you out. If you keep going like this, you can ride for a while in there without touching the same trail twice. After a few ups and downs you'll hit the power lines; The trail picks up again off the power line trail. I haven't explored the whole area by any means. Going to upload a GPS track of my most recent route.
