A climbing trail that gets smoother the further you climb along its shaded switchbacks.

Features -none-

The trails at Galbraith Mountain are built and maintained by the WMBC - Whatcom Mountain Bike Coalition and mountain bikers account for most of the traffic. Runners are still welcome, but many trails are for descending riders only.

Description

This short climbing trail gives runners an alternative to the middle section of the Ridge Trail. The first half is a bit more challenging as the narrow benching travels over occasional rocks and roots.

After it crosses over Ridge Trail East, things get a easier as it climbs onto the side of the ridge. At a cluster of rocks, there's an optional spur that connects to the Ridge Trail while the singletrack continues ahead. The rest of the trail up to the viewpoint is noticeable smoother.
