PLEASE NOTE: Larrabee State Park is extremely popular with families hiking, dog walkers and equestrians, so please be extra courteous to all trail users while practicing for the enduro. Also, Cleator Road is open to the public, so always expect vehicle traffic on it.

Pro/Expert/Hardtail Race Stages:
1. Upper Chuckanut Ridge Trail and LEFT down Galen’s Step.
2. Lower Chuckanut Ridge (finish at Dan’s Traverse)
3. Hush- Hush
4. Raptor Ridge
5. Double Black
6. Double Down

Transition 1:
From main venue (band shell), follow the signs and go directly across Chuckanut Drive and up to the Interurban Trail. Go RIGHT on the Interurban trail and then go LEFT (up) towards Fragrance Lake Road next to the sewage ponds. NOTE: You can either take the trail next to the sewer plant or go through the Clayton Beach/Lost Lake parking lot and go LEFT through the gate.
Stay straight on Fragrance Lake Road and keep going PAST (left) one split in the road and also past the Fragrance Lake turnoff until you hit Cleator Road. Then, turn RIGHT on Cleator road and climb up to the Cyrus Gates Overlook parking lot. There is a quick push up on the LEFT side of the parking lot (directly across from the viewpoint) that goes to the top of Double Black Diamond and the Upper Ridge trail.

Race Stage 1- Upper Chuckanut Ridge to Galen’s Step
Always technical, sometimes weird, the Upper Ridge has a couple of short punchy climbs combined with some rocky tech moves. From the top of the mountain, go down (riders LEFT) the Upper Chuckanut Ridge and take the LEFT turn down towards Cleator Road. If you get into a big section of hike-a-bike, you’ve missed the LEFT turn. This stage will end before the road.

Transition 2:
From stage 1 finish, riders will turn right on Cleator Road for .5 mile and take a right hand turn onto the Lower Ridge Connector and climb up to the Lower Chuckanut Ridge Trail. There is a beautiful West-facing viewpoint of the San Juan Islands and Chuckanut Bay that is worth a quick stop. This stage will start after a steep singletrack climb where the trail flattens out to a fantastic East-facing viewpoint of Mt. Baker and the Twin Sisters.

Race Stage 2 – Lower Chuckanut Ridge Trail
This will be a sprint stage through some tough rocky / rooty sections. It begins at the big, flat Eastern viewpoint on the trail and has a couple of initial punchy climbs before it flattens out and goes into rocky tech moves. Follow the trail down the steeper, rocky section into the 90 degree right hand turn onto “Dan’s Traverse”. This stage will end along Dan’s Traverse ~100 feet before intersecting with the Lost Lake Trail.
NOTE: ALL Right hand lines along the cliffs will be taped/blocked off along with any potential Euro cut-throughs on the switchbacks near the bottom.

Transition 3:
Riders will go across North Lost Lake Trail and do a short, technical climb on Salal trail. After a quick, technical descent, continue to Hush-Hush (Lower Salal).

Race Stage 3:
This is a challenging trail, full of tight corners and peppered with roots this will challenge even the best riders... Mentally and physically.

Transition 4:
Turn right on North Lost Lake Trail and follow to Hemlock Trail. Turn right on Hemlock and follow until you reach the Hemlock and Huckleberry Trail intersection. Take the Huckleberry Trail. This climb is steep for the first 0.5 miles. It is an old road grade and may require some hike-a-biking for riders. Follow this trail until reaching Raptor Ridge Trail.
NOTE: The South-facing Raptor Ridge Viewpoint is ~100 yards uphill on the trail and is worth stopping to enjoy for a quick rest stop.

Race Stage 4 – Raptor Ridge Trail
The Raptor start is just downhill from the Raptor / Huckleberry intersection. Raptor Ridge will be a flowy xc oriented stage with a few punchy climbs and tight switchbacks to navigate. The finish will be just before reaching the North Lost Lake Trail.

Transition 5:
After completing Raptor Ridge Trail, go LEFT on North Lost Lake Trail heading South towards Lost Lake. Follow the trail and stay right as it becomes South Lost Lake Trail and continue heading South. At the Rock Trail intersection, riders will dismount their bike and HIKE-A-BIKE this entire trail uphill and past the Double Black Diamond intersection (look uphill for oncoming bike traffic) until they reach the Cyrus Gates Overlook.

**IMPORTANT: The Rock Trail is a beautifully built hiker trail that goes past glacial erratic’s and sandstone cliffbands. The WMBC has gained permission to go UP this trail for this race. While most of this trail is steep and requires hike-a- biking, it is MANDATORY that everyone hikes the entire trail – even on the 3 flat or down’ish sections. Please observe this during practice as well. There will be at least one course marshal on course during the race and if anyone is caught riding their bike, they will receive an automatic Disqualification. Additionally, always yield to any hikers you see on the trail....they have the right of way.

Race Stage 5 – Double Black Diamond
From the top of the mountain, go down (riders RIGHT) the Top of Double Black Diamond. Just before the exit, go LEFT at the Y on a newly routed section that crosses Lost lake Trail. Follow this section down to the finish just before Fragrance Lake Road.

Transition 6:
Continue down Fragrance Lake Road for 200 feet to Double Down.

Stage 6:
Double Down contains several rock rolls with optional lines that will give riders easier/harder lines through those sections. This section will end just above Fragrance Lake Road.

Transition 7:
After completing Double Down, riders will take a RIGHT immediately after exiting to Fragrance Lake Road. This will connect to the Interurban trail where riders will go RIGHT for 200 yards and then go LEFT downhill and cross Chuckanut drive and back to the Larrabee Campground. Please pay attention when crossing the road here

Trail Double Down
Really Double Down is the 'double black' trail between the two, if anything. Double Down is a legit solid black anywhere in the world, with some expert features. Double Black trail was easier- both are fun with some tech, roots, drops, good dirt.

Meh. As recommended we rode the upper trail to Galen’s (Galen’s was fun but short) got back on the lower section and much like the upper section was some long flattish bits with some rooty techy xc… if that’s your jam you’ll live this trail. The area is beautiful.

This area is hiking trails. Of all the trails we rode here, this was the only one that felt like an mtb trail. But it's short. Not worth the boring riding on the hiking trails.

This is NOT an mtb trail. Wish someone would have warned us. This is a VERY steep hiking trail. Nothing exciting on it. Also, the way down was also lame. Mostly just a fire road. This is for hiking.

I had a blast on this trail! I would consider it a must do if you seek out gnarly trails, enjoy adventure rides, and have the skills to clean it. I think other black trails should feel like a walk in the park for you to fully enjoy this one. I think it’s a lot harder to get down this trail clean than it is to do the same on double down. It’s somewhere in between downhill and XC. That said, it’s a riot when you nail the right line and carry your momentum through a web of massive diagonal roots or clean one of the rock lines! I made the mistake of taking galens step down and skipping the middle. That felt like a waste of time and elevation. I’d rather pick my way down the ridge and walk a few sections if need be.

Trials riding skills needed to ride this trail clean! More hike a bike sections than you can count riding North going (down) feels like you do as much up as down! Once again if you are a Trials rider, love really technical almost un-rideable trail that goes up and down in little short steep parts this trail is for you. Even as a hiking trail its silly. Why always stick to the top of the ridge about 30 bypasses around the million little ups along the ridge crest are needed to make this a fun trail. If you love hike a bike this is your trail.

Apparently roots have been removed today. This trail is a local favorite specifically because of the technical roots and rocks. Do not alter the trail simply because you can not clean each feature! Go back uphill and practice, then practice some more instead of changing a perfectly good technical xc trail.

Unassuming, brutal trail with empty promises of flow and rocky technicality. 85% is pushing through brush, cursing the trees, and hike-a-bike ascents. Downhill suggestion on the map is misleading as the variance is so close. Several awesome rock sections for technical navigation, but certainly not worth the effort of the entire route. Stay on DBD and DD.

I don’t know. Maybe i like pain but aside from the mandatory hike a bike there really is only one other section that needs to be pushed otherwise with solid skills and lots of mashing it is all doable. Its not for everyone and that is fine not every trail should be. The best way to put it is the trail is physical.

I find the ridge trail to Galen’s step to the connector trail (bypassing the middle section of ridge), followed by hush hush to be a very nice trail, technical and fun and in a beautiful location. Dirt is great. Certainly not a manicured flow trail but it’s definitely worthwhile.

The people who are saying trail "isn't worth it" or is "unridable" are most likely attempting to ride the middle part of the trail, which is indeed unridable and not really intended as part of the downhill mt bike route. It's an up-and-down scramble in there. The upper ridge and lower ridge sections are techy and fun. Good mt biking if you like challenging, technical terrain. Hard, yes, but a lot of us like that. Great stuff! Do skip the middle part, either way. That is not part of the route. Take Galen's Step out, go down the road a bit and get back on via the Ridge Trail Connector. Enjoy.

Not worth riding. It’s a hiking trail. The first few minutes are ok, mostly just tech and tight roots and rocks between tight trees. The last minute or so is ok. The middle absolutely sucks. Multiple unrideable sections interspersed with short (20-30 seconds) periods of mediocre flat pedaling sectors before the next dismount. The kicker is that after this you lose about 1000 feet of elevation on a crushed gravel path back to the parking lot. I’m honestly kind of pissed this trail was recommended to me

Signage in the area calls this the Huckleberry Trail. Not shown on the Trailforks map as of 2/2018, but it continues East of Hemlock Trail for 0.8mi.
