Mountain Biking Island Center Forest

****   Add a review
#105 of 1,207 mountain bike trails in Washington
#5,576 in the world

Drains poorly. There are often huge sections underwater for most of winter and spring, stranding sections of trail. It also sees heavy equestrian use so the tread is often soft and rutted. There are couple fun sections that offer a small technical challenge and roll around the small hills on the property.

    Wrong location. It is on Vashon Island not near Green Lake.
