Walker Valley/Cavanaugh Loop

Walker Valley/Cavanaugh Loop Professional Review and Guide

"If you can’t find singletrack to ride in Walker Valley, you’re just not looking! Miles of trails meander through more than 10, 000 acres of this DNR land, an area also popular with the ORV (off-road vehicle) crowd.

The loop described here is a moderate ride consisting of a short road climb and a rolling attack on the forest; the trails are semi-technical and can be muddy and wet. There are a number of loop variations, and the trails are marked at most intersections. Some local mountain bikers call Walker Valley the Capitol State Forest of northern Washington because its trails and the conditions are similar to those found farther south in Olympia."

This is the same as Walker Valley. Wide grooved out trails for ORV's or ATV's. Not good for biking. Couldn't find Walker Valley trail so our trip was cut short.
