Part of the access route between Blanchard & Chuckanut trail systems. This old trail is know to be a real trial. Overgrown in places, sharp bushes and has water damage. If this is a trail you like to use to get to the top of Chuckanut mountain, consider spending some time clearing and maintaining it. It’s great to have town to trail access, keep it and make it work well

Riders report that this is a very tough hike a bike / climb that is not rewarding. You've been warned !

      Very grown-in with thorny bushes over about two thirds of the length of the trail. Wear gloves and long sleeves, but better yet, bring a weed cutter!

       I believe this was called Overland trail, came across it hiking a couple years ago and it was dug out for mtn bikes but pretty worn out. Start is at the top of the clear cut and can lead you to lost lake. Singletrack.

       Deep, soft dirt rut full of loose, bowling ball sized rocks. Blown out and definitely a hike a bike segment. Also incredibly overgrown

       Wouldn't want to push up, but it's a lot of fun going down!

       Brushy, but kinda fun descent from the top of burnout. I wouldn't want to go up it. The lower part is less brushy. Definitely has erosion issues. I believe this was originally a Moto uptrack back in the day.
