Galbraith's primary south-side climb.

Eric Ashley

Description

Galbraith Mountain is privately owned, but the trails are created and maintained by WMBC. Galbraith is open to non-motorized users except for hunting and fishing. The area is an ongoing site for logging operations so visitors should be on the lookout for temporary trail closures. Trails are multi-use; expect traffic in both directions and yield to hikers and equestrian users.
The Tower Road is the quickest and most direct route from the Samish Way Parking Lot to the summit of Galbraith.

From the Samish Way Parking Lot, you'll head east across Samish Way onto Galbraith Lane for 0.25 miles. Take the right onto the Galbraith Lane Spur, ignoring the misleading "private property" signs just stay on the road and off people's lawns. Turn left at the first yellow gate and keep following Tower Road toward the summit. Stay right at both the Blue Rock and Red Rock, and then a left at the Yellow Rock after Unemployment Line. Finally take the next left for the final steep climb to the summit and prepare for a fun descent.
