This trail is awesome. The people on it are helpful and it is very scenic. Beware it is very popular and isn't like riding mountain trails on your own. Also, you have to pay to use this public land. I know it goes to maintain...More

We had a BEAUTIFUL day to ride this trail! The volunteers are friendly and helpful, and the views can't be beat! We saw kids from 3 years old and up enjoying the ride with their families. It's an easy downhill and the tunnels can be...More

We went with a family group of 12 ranging from ages 2-72. Great fun! An easy downhill ride for the lazy ones in the family, dark and spooky tunnels for the thrill seekers. You do need a good bike light for the tunnels; we only...More

I was worried from some of the reviews of how scary/uneven the tunnel section was. It's not, if you've been on a bike there is nothing to worry about. I felt like the ride got a little more rugged towards the last 3-4 miles but...More

This is a beautiful place and a really cool adventure, but there were a few disappointments that overshadowed the whole experience. The latter part of the downhill trail needs maintenance. It was so bumpy that it made it uncomfortable for my children to ride for...More

I would call the surface rocks, rather than gravel. It was an arduous trek. I've ridden 1000's of miles but never on anything close to this bad. I saw a woman with a trailer beside the trail holding a baby. I'm thinking, "Shaken baby syndrome?"...More

Magnificent beauty. This is an easy ride for people of all ages as you coast down the trail, which is a 2% grade all of the way. You get to ride through 9 tunnels, which are really cool - literally. It is 38 degrees in...More

Definitely worth it! Just be prepared with very good headlamps, and bike front headlight, and I would also suggest red reflector flashing back lights on bike itself. Very difficult to see person ahead of you in the dark tunnels, and if someone stops unexpectantly it...More

Hi, We are visiting the area in late August from the UK and want to know if you have to rent bikes and other equipment in advance or just turn up on the day. We will be staying nearby at Wallace having travelled from Seattle by car. Any advice would be appreciated
