Galbraith Mountain

Galbraith Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"More than thirty individual trails and numerous gravel access roads weave throughout the forest of Bellingham’s Galbraith Mountain like a spider’s web gone wrong. Navigating the labyrinth of thigh-burning lactic acid–churning climbs, deep ruts, treacherous drops, and tight technical singletrack that winds, twists, turns, crisscrosses, zigs, zags, climbs, and descends is a serious challenge all by itself.

Galbraith is as hardcore as it gets without donning downhill gear and hurling your bike down a mountain. None of these trails is for pseudo mountain bikers. If you are not physically fit or do not have strong skills, Galbraith will run over you like a jacked up NFL line backer. For strong intermediate and advanced riders, the crazy maze of trails and burly terrain is like a siren’s call that mountain bikers can’t ignore. Trail surface: Singletrack and gravel access roads."

Galbraith offers a vast variety of riding covering cross country trails, to freeride trails with man made obstacles, and downhill trails with steep and challenging rock sections. As such it offers a trail for every type of rider looking for fun. This particular loop is a solid one, sure to get your heart pounding fast both on the way up and on the way down. I'd recommend starting with the described loop, then venturing out to explore the elaborate network of trails this mountain has to offer. You could make several days of it.
