Zig-zagging singletrack over changing elevation.

Features -none-

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.

Description

From the top there is a little elevation gain before the trail switchbacks back and forth down the slope. There are a couple of steeper grades. The trail will mellow out for a bit once you hit the gravel doubletrack before it heads back into the woods for more climbing/descending. When the trail pitches down, it's generally for a few tight switchbacks before straightening out for a while. This portion continues through beautiful lush forest before connecting with the Lake Padden Loop.
