Trail shared by Tad Davis

A trail which follows Chuckanut Ridge with technical footing over steep climbs and large boulders.

Tad Davis

Features Birding · Views · Wildlife

This is a popular trail with mountain bikers who will be descending at speed. Be alert as you run.

Runner Notes

Rocks and roots make for technical running in parts. Also watch the drop off to your right.

Description

The trail starts very tame but quickly becomes rugged with roots, rocks, and slick boulders. There are many short drops and climbs which may require some sitting and sliding down and some scrambling up. The drop to your left is tame but the drop to your right can be dangerous in spots, though it isn't very exposed for the most part.

Towards the end of the trail, you'll see Dan's Traverse on your left. Soon after you'll come to an opening on some boulders with a great view of Mt. Baker on a clear day. A short distance and the trail will drop significantly before turning tame again and connecting to the Lost Lake Trail.
