The iconic Tokul East trail. The trail was awesome before the logging. It is still very fun from late fall, thru Winter and early Spring. in Summer, due to the clear cut, it gets blown out and full of marbles. Also blackberries and scotsbroom often overgrow this trail. The trail is built as a natural halfpipe, going up and down the sides of a small valley. A few optional natural-feature drops are in the trail. Consider yourself good if you ride the entire trail without pedaling or braking til you get to the swamp bridge at the bottom.

Access Info

Note: a Campbell Global Recreation Pass (see website below) is required to ride the Tokul East and Tokul West trails.

From the parking lot on 356th, head East on the SVT. After a half mile or so, take the dirt road going up to the left. This is the main access road for all Tokul East trails. Bear left at each road junction, until you come to the powerlines in the clearing. At the first power tower, take the road to the right, rather than continuing uphill on the powerline road (towards Crazy Ivan and Midtown). This right junction road crosses a few creeks, then continues uphill, with a few switchbacks. At the top this road ends in a T at the upper road. To the left is an alternate access to MidTown, Crazy Ivan and KGB. To the right, the upper road heads towards the XC trails, Flowtron, Last Frontier, and OGDH. The trailhead for the latter three is right before the big rock and log seating area 100 yards East up the road.

After entering the trail, to ride Flowtron, stay to the left on the trail. To ride OGDH, take the first junction to the right. To ride Last Frontier, take the 2nd junction to the right.

Brushed and good to go. A few brambles might get you, but it's good to go.

 Flowtron has never been the same since the area was logged. Have re-visited a few times over the past few years in hopes the ground had healed up, but have been disappointed each time. It's just sad man...

 Flowtron runs great any season but Summer, when it dries out too much. Tokul East is one of the best Winter riding areas, and Flowtron has been primo all month.

 Tokul is a great place to ride anytime, but is really the go to place for XC and light freeride during the cold, dark, and wet nights of the Seattle area.

 Just a boring hairpin after hairpin turn, half pipe.l trail. The bottom section is even more forgettable. Lots of marbles.
