“A dirt and gravel road that climbs to the top of Chuckanut Mountain.”
— Tad Davis
Open to vehicles, be alert as you run.
Cleator Road is non-technical but has enough of a sustained grade to make you work hard at any pace.
From Chuckanut Drive you'll see a sign for Hiline Road which is the paved section that turns into Cleator. There is a medium sized parking lot at the start of Cleator. Head up the dirt, first passing the trailhead for Two Dollar
on your right, then the trailhead for Dan's Traverse
on your left. Next, you'll come to the trailhead for Fragrance Lake Road
on your right and finally the trailhead for Chuckanut Ridge Trail
, also on your right. The road ends at the parking lot known as Cyrus Gates Overlook with a great view of the San Juans.
