Update

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

Overview

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