#69 of 1,205 mountain bike trails in Washington
A well planned set of mostly singletrack trails cut through thick forests around a few lakes and over several ridges. There are a couple of old FS roads at the south end of this area that link several trails together. Out of the three ACFL area's this one has the most beginner/intermediate riding. Access to the Heart Lake area can be found at the SE corner off of FS road 10. There are maps located at a few of the main trailheads but picking up a map at the LBS is recommended. All trails are well signed at intersections, numbered and although may not be in order do make sense after you have ridden here a bit. There are a few trails that are designated 'hiker only', predominantly around the immediate lake shores and some steep ridges.

The ACFL areas are planned community-wise so there are many access points from small neighborhoods, most of these however do not have much in the way of public parking. The following are trailheads with public parking;
1. From Commercial Ave (the main street) in Anacortes turn West on 12th st following the signs toward the Ferry Terminal, turn south on Georgia st, 2 blocks until signed right turn onto a gravel rd, follow to parking at lakes edge, several trails start from here.
2. From Commercial Ave turn West on 32 st and follow it to D ave, turn left and follow D as it takes a 90 becoming 37th and then another 90 becoming A ave. Just after the turn park on the right side of road, trails start through a gate.
