This trail is from the upper parking lot of Blanchard mountain. It is a great climb and super fun on the way down. It is a multi use trail so in the summer you do come across some horse droppings.

Access Info

From I-5 take the Alger exit turn west, go 1/4 mile turn left on Barrel Spring Rd fallow signs to Blanchard Mtn.

       Super fun fast descent. Very much different than your usual Bellingham trail. Watch out for hikers though as you're booking around lots of blind corners. This trail is definitely NOT "Unsanctioned". Don't believe those elevation stats either, this is not even close to a 2300 ft descent.
