“Beautiful 6.2 mile ride along the Big Quilcene River.”— Eric Ashley
Electric Mountain Bikes Allowed
From the top, the trail starts as smooth twisting singletrack with frequent tight vegetation and embankments. Several creek crossings along the way may be wet or muddy.
The middle part of Lower Big Quilcene opens up with a wider corridor and longer straightaways. Sections of rocks and roots make this more technical and the edge of the trail gets steeper above the river.
Two adjacent bridge crossing signal the third portion of which becomes a wide track along a clear corridor. Rider's speed can really pick up here, so be alert for other trail users. The last mile of the trail is a moderate, but steady, climb to the trailhead.
