Cranberry Lake

Cranberry Lake Professional Review and Guide

"The Cranberry Lake trails provide some lush, classically northwest, in-town singletrack suitable for the adventurous beginner. Rooty, rocky, twisting, forested roller coaster without as much steep climbing, but also without the corresponding distant views.

Numerous spots along the route feature two distinct lines, or even trail splits, with a more beginner-friendly line and a more advanced, challenging, technical line. The trail network allows good explorability; numerous routes are available. Be creative, but be sensitive to the trails on which bikes are not allowed. Scenery: The scenery, too: old-growth Douglas fir, Cranberry Lake and wetland views; you might catch glimpses of eagles, otters, and beavers as well."

I love this ride. It's minutes from downtown Anacortes, starts from a small little lake, and meanders around the lake. This can be ridden quickly as an all-out cross country training ride, or it can be ridden more slowly. Either way, I love it. The terrain is a solid mix of rolling XC, with mildly rooted sections, and a section or two of short technical climbs and descents. I always feel good at the end of this ride. And it doesn't hurt to wrap things up at the edge of a lake. Check this one out.
