Getting forecast...

Long but smooth road climb pays off with two high-speed s-turn descents on buff singletrack.

Features -none-

Snow from Nov to May. Moto use. Best ridden after rainy period.

Overview

An easy access loop in the Chikamin area. Climb the low grade 6210 road for 1-1.5 hrs. Right turn on to Chikamin Tie Trail takes you down 15 minutes of singletrack; starting with steeper swichbacks but mostly s-turns at high speed.

Need to Know

There can be heavy moto use here in deep summer.

You'll need a NW Forest Pass to park at the lot. Otherwise you can park off the road in spots.

Description

You'll start out climbing on the 6210 road for a solid 1-1.5 hours. It's got a fairly low grade, but it's consistent! You need to gain about 3,000 vertical feet before you head down.

Take a left at the junction to Chikamin Creek trail where you'll enter and exit 5 large drainages. Each one has fun descents and steep re-climbs. After the last, start one of the best descents in Washington. After a short steep grade there's 20 minutes of left-right-left at perfect grades and virtually no pedaling...until the very end where a short steep climb returns you to the parking lot.

Low moto use on the Chikamin Creek section is a plus.
