“Gentle gravel road cirque around Lake Padden.”
— Eric Ashley
The trails at Padden Lake are multi-use and are open between 6:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. Bikers are allowed on the trails, but they are frequented more by hikers, joggers, dog walkers, and equestrian users. With so many other trail users, this area is better suited to casual riding, especially given its close proximity to Galbraith Mountain. Dogs are required to be leashed except in designated areas.
A gentle gravel doubletrack that circles around Lake Padden. Minimal elevation change and a smooth tread provide a good "no obstacle" ride that still has a forest feel. Expect plenty of other trail users.
