The Chuckanut Recreation Area has several THs (including Larrabee SP) to chose from and all feature stout climbs that are rewarded with fast DH runs. Bring your lungs & legs, they will be needed. Even the beginner trails require a big effort on the climbs. Trails vary from gravel roads to narrow ridgeline singletrack. There are rewards for your effort though as there are viewpoints of Mt. Baker and the bay along the trails. For raw beginners or family fun the Interurban Trail skirts the area and provides up to 14 miles of OAB riding with little vertical challenge (less than 300').
