Mountain Biking Heart Lake - Acfl
#45 of 1,205 mountain bike trails in Washington
Great singletrack trails through old forest on rolling terrain around a lake make for some very fun ridding in a beautiful setting. This area is bordered on the North and West by private property, some trails cross over these lines so please ride with respect. Of the three ACFL areas this one contains mostly intermediate riding trails. 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. FS Road 25 & trail 212 (clockwise) make a very fun loop. There are a few trails that are designated â€˜hiker onlyâ€™, 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 st) in Anacortes turn West on 32 st and follow it to H ave, turn left (south) onto H and follow it about a mile where it turns into Heart Lake rd, about .5 mile farther is a right turn into large parking lot for Heart Lake, several trails start here. Also, one access for the Whistle Lake area is directly across main rd.
2. Continuing on Heart Lake rd .5 mile there is parking on the left at the intersection of Mt Erie rd, another access pt for Whistle Lake area, Heart Lake trails are across main road through a gate.
