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.

Expert / Pro Race Stages:
1. Upper Chuckanut Ridge Trail and LEFT down Galen’s Step.
2. Double Black
3. Double Down
4. Two Dollar

Transition 1:
From Larrabee campground, 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.

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 before the road.

Transition 2:
After completing stage 1, go LEFT on Cleator Road back to the Cyrus Gates Overlook parking lot. Go back up the quick push up, just like for stage 1. Double Black is to the right.

Stage 5: Double Black
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 Fragrance Lake Road.

Transition 3:
Continue down Fragrance Lake Road for 200 feet to Double Down.

Stage 6: Double Down
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 4:
At Fragrance Lake Road turn left and head back up. Stay straight on Fragrance Lake Road and keep going PAST (left) one split in the road and continue up to Fragrance Lake. Go left through the split rail fencing and take an immediate right towards Fragrance Lake. Before reaching the lake, go left and across the wooden boardwalk. Follow that trail above the lake and take the next left up a short climb. The start will be at the intersection where this climb flattens out.

Stage 7 – Two Dollar Trail
The stage will start at the intersection to the Fragrance Lake on the more established section of the Two Dollar Trail. Racers will finish after the last RIGHT hand switchback just before reaching the Cleator Road.
Transition 2:
From the bottom of Two Dollar Trail, go LEFT (Down) Cleator Road. Please use Caution. Towards the bottom you will take the Interurban Trail back to Larrabee. PLEASE USE CAUTION DESCENDING CLEATOR ROAD.

Technical XC trail. Fun with some hike-a-bike for most riders. Probably black diamond for most.
