Should be a monster

This route covers every trail on Galbraith at least once.

Some uphill trails are repeated due to multiple laps in the same area, and some fire road climbs are repeated to get back to the top easy or lack of any better route.

Starting point is at the Alvarado Drive trailhead, and finishing point is at the end of SST/Backdoor. Both are a couple blocks from parking at Whatcom Falls Park.
