A primary access trail to reach the Tower Road.

Eric Ashley

Description

Galbraith Mountain is privately owned but 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.
Built in response to a gate closure that altered the traditional access to the south side of Galbraith, Gate and Switch was opened in mid-2016 to connect riders from the Pipeline Road to the Tower Road.

From the start, the trail makes a number of intersections with Last Call, simply follow the wider trail at each of these intersections until you come to a large wooden bridge. On the other side, the trail winds through a clear cut to eventually end near the kiosk at Checkpoint Alpha.

In the clear cut, keep right at the first intersection and left at the second. These two connector trails feed traffic back onto Gate and Switch for the return.
