“A tough climbing start into a lovely old-growth forest pedal.”— Eric Ashley
The USFS asks non-hikers to avoid using lower sections of this trail during wet weather to protect sensitive soil areas.
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.
