The Ridge Trail is the classic means of access to Galbraith from the north side. It is the primarily climbing route these days, with SST being the primary descent. If you do descend the Ridge, keep in mind that you will most likely be encountering tons of uphill bike traffic. There are numerous places to jump on and off the access road from the single track on the way up - keep to the right for the more difficult singletrack route. With its unrelenting grade and numerous rock/root sections, the Ridge will test your fitness level. There is a fantastic view spot overlooking Bellingham about 2/3 of the way up.
