A tough climbing start into a lovely old-growth forest pedal.

Features -none-

The trails in the Dungeness area typically open in the Spring according to the USFS. Mountain bikers are allowed on a select number of trails in the area, and multi-use traffic should be expected in both directions.

The USFS asks non-hikers to avoid using lower sections of this trail during wet weather to protect sensitive soil areas.

Description

**03/11/2015 the Hood Canal Ranger District reports that Road FS2870-230 has no trailhead parking (Lower Dungeness and Gold Creek Trailhead) due to slide damage. And there is slide damage 1.5 miles in on the Lower Dungeness Trail.**

The bottom portion of Lower Dungeness trail is a fairly steep, rolling, climb that peaks out just before the intersection with the Three O'Clock Ridge Trail. Many riders prefer to climb up Road FS2870 and descend via the Three O'Clock Ridge Trail to this point particularly to avoid soft muddy conditions in wet weather.

From there, a short descent brings riders down near the river to pedal in-between trees in an incredible old-growth forest. The next couple miles continue as a gradual climb through the woods until the trail ends below the Upper Dungeness Trailhead.
