      PVCA Mountain Bike Trails
      Snohomish County bought the land as a Conservation area (about 800 acres) for wildlife and wetlands protection around 2003 and closed access to the whole area. After several years and a lot of work primarily by local Mountain Bikers a portion of the area was re-opened with re-routed more environmentally friendly trails. The area consists of approx. 12 miles of trails although only about 9 miles of trails for biking. There are a few walking only trails ([please respect these) and 1 bike only trail but most trails are open to bikes, hiking and horses. The Mainline trail is fairly smooth but does have some light rooty sections and two slight hills, great for kids and beginners. It does not make a loop requiring either backtracking or taking other trails (which are much rootier and twistier) back to the main parking lot. Most of the other trails are fairly rooty with lots of twists and turns and only a few climb/descents. The trails are primarily somewhere between advanced beginner and intermediate in difficulty with the main challenge being roots, lots of exposed roots. Recent trails work in the past few years has eliminated much of the mud that had been a real issue during the winter here in the Pacific North Wet.
