“Middle stage of the 3 Pigs climbing route.”
— Eric Ashley
Galbraith Mountain is privately owned but trails are created and maintained by WMBC. Galbraith is open to non-motorized users except for hunting and fishing. The area is an ongoing site for logging operations so visitors should be on the lookout for temporary trail closures. Trails are multi-use; expect traffic in both directions and yield to hikers and equestrian users.
Stick, along with Brick
, form the 3 Pigs a moderate climbing route that leaves across from Checkpoint Alpha and climbs to the lower end of Kaiser
. Although 3 Pigs is more challenging and is 0.2 miles longer than the road, it's a lot more fun than a gravel road climb. This trail can be ridden in either direction.
Stick is the easiest of the three sections. It is also smoothly accessed from Pony Express
, allowing riders to make a less challenging climb by excluding Brick
. On the way down, Stick begins on the same road that Unemployment Line
feeds onto, RD 2300, so it can serve as an alternate descent to Atomic Dog
. In either direction, look forward to pleasant singletrack winding through rich forest.
