High Point

The Dungeness Gold Creek loop is a classic. This variation bypasses the lowest and steepest portion of Lower Dungeness in favor of the mellow climb on gravel instead, then dropping 3 O'clock ridge to Lower Dungeness for the remainder of the upriver singletrack climb. At the upper end of Lower Dungeness, again, climb a bit on the road to the Gold Creek TH. Ride Gold Creek in its entirety, then a short climb on decommissioned road will return you to your car.

Gold Creek Trail

Beautiful trail in ideal, tacky conditions right now. There are about 5 blowdowns that you have to walk under but are congregated in a relatively short stretch of trail. Not a single other person on the trail.
