“Prime singletrack with a twisty steep finish.”
— Eric Ashley
Sumas Mountian is a multi-use recreation area expect traffic in both directions and be prepared to yield. The mountain is also an ongoing logging operation site.
Noah Fear starts off the road and cuts down to a large bridge before a short climb out. From there, the first half of the trail is an ribbon of singletrack excitedly flowing back and forth through the trees. A number of optional rollers and drops provide a little extra amusement on the way to the road crossing. The second half continues with a short climb up to a small clearing, on the other side Noah Fear gets more aggressive.
Steep twisty singletrack with sudden elevation changes are the norm for a while. Keep towards the left for the second, and larger, rock descent. This gives the cleanest line, even if it feeds riders next to the trees. This section heads directly into Noah Fear's signature log ride. Take the ramp up and prepare for a long ride out. The log is reasonably wide, and there are shingles for occasional grip. At the end, take the left ramp for the easiest out, or straight for a steeper ramp into a double. A little more singletrack pedaling will shortly bring riders to the finish.
