Mountain Biking Cranberry Lake

*****   Add a review
#70 of 1,207 mountain bike trails in Washington
#3,631 in the world

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.

Getting there
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.

    Alternative description from "Guest"

    This ride is a combination of different trails, starting in the Skyline area by
    the water tower on Cedar Glen Way. Starting with trail 109 heading East.
    At the first T intersection I made a right, continuing on track 110 crossing
    the creek between the Wetland and the Little Beaver Pond. At the next T
    intersection I made a right again heading SW on trail 115. The Goal was to
    head to the forest road (FR)10. I used trail 120, 115, 116 and 117 to get to
    reach FR 10. Once on FR 10 go around Mitten Pond and take the first single
    trail (126) right. This will connect to the Heart Lake trail system.
    Trail 241 is the first trail, continuing onto trail 224. I did a little side trip on
    trail 210 to get to the lake, giving my dogs a chance to go for a swim. Back
    on trail 224 continue, the trail with change to 250. This is a fun twisty
    section, just a few climbs. At the T intersection make a left and continue on
    212. Trail 212 makes a big circle around a hill and will get back to trail 250.
    Don't miss the intersection, or you will do another circle around the hill.
    Once back on 250 basically used the same trail system to get back to
