Rode the trail from darrington to trafton with a car at both ends on a bluebird day. Blue sky, fall colors, salmon swimming upstream. What a day! Enjoyed the eastern half of the trail a bit more than the western half. It was more wooded and further away from Hwy 530. It was also narrower so difficult to ride abreast. Eastern half is all gravel while western half has several extended paved sections. Don’t know how those decisions were made. Crossed well over a dozen bridges/trestles on the trail. The bridges were slick as snot due to wet leaves so use caution
Did most of this trail today (starting in Sedro-Woolley)—38.2 miles in total. We turned around just before Hurn Field Conservation Area. There’s a big tree down across the trail at Hamilton Junction but you can get over it (although tough lifting a 65 pound e-bike). There’s also a partially collapsed trestle bridge over a creek that had no water in it. No problem still getting over bridge—just have to get off your bike. Overall, a beautiful trail that is in pretty good shape. One area has some deep ruts. Fall colors of deciduous trees were wonderful. Trail got less and less busy as we got closer to Concrete but not busy for a sunny Sunday. Some parts you’re close to Hwy. 20 unfortunately.
I was trying to do this trail but once you get out of fairhaven, there is a closed bridge and no clear way around it unfortunately. I ended up just doing some road biking instead. Other then that i really enjoyed the sections of the trail that were accessible.
We started our ride from the Birch Bay State Park and headed north around the Semiahmoo area on Birch Point Road, Which connects to this trail right before it goes out onto the spit. We tried biking down the trail and back up the hill from the spit and found it very difficult with all the tree roots that have made the path very uneven and unsafe, when traveling at any speed. It’s a beautiful walking trail, but not so great for biking.
We rode this Trail all the way far past where it says it's closed at the RV Park across the bay on the walk/ bike Bridge to the street
…At least not at the south end. The surface is irregular gravel with rocks large enough to knock you out of your chair. Barely wide enough for a chair but not for passing bikes.
This amazing trail is unfortunately closed due to a fire that engulfed the wooden structure.
I loved this trail. We had access to this trail right outside of our Thousand Trails Campground. So peaceful with very little traffic. I got on the trail near Birdsview and went east. If you went west you were weaving in and out of traffic on a busy 2 lane Hwy. most of the way to Sedro-Wooly.
Spring riding can be a bit tricky, some of the trail is under water and waterproof shoes are very beneficial.
But other then that it is a beautiful trail and looking forward on riding it again.
We did not know that this trail was there and were in concrete. We ping the bird view diner but did not want to take the main road on our bikes. To our pleasant surprise we found this trail. It is a well maintained gravel path. Only issue we hit was a bit where it had washed out but there were planks just off the trail for us to cross on our bikes. Planning to do the full length in the future.
The trail is closed from a wash out starting in Arlington. We parked in the first designated parking area 11 miles East of Arlington. We headed West towards Arlington to see where it was closed and why. Shortly after starting out we came to an intersection of a county road just before the first highway crossing. We were greeted by a BIG white-possibly Pyrenees Dog which came after us barking, growling and snapping at our legs. The rest of our ride way uneventful but we had to pass the area with the dog to get back to our car. We luckily have electric bikes and when we came back to the area the dog was standing in the middle of the trail. We used our power assist to speed past the dog which came after us but couldn't keep up.
I rode the entire trail, up and back. The surface of the trail is nearly all in excellent shape. The grades are mild and none are very long. The street crossings in Snohomish are mostly very easy. Further up, in Arlington, the street crossings are not quite as safe. The trail has plenty of places to stop and restrooms at key locations. The trail passes through some very pretty forest and farm country. There are markets and coffee shops in two or three places. There are several excellent places for a lunch stop. I spotted eagles twice. To avoid the traffic on the Snohomish end, consider parking at Machias Road access (Three Lakes exit from Highway 2). Going up and back from Machias or Pilchuck parking areas gives approximately 50 miles up and back instead of 61.
