Finn Hill Sate park

Average Rating:    (4.06 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 18

there are tons off trails for many skill levels, mostly crosscountry, there are jumps, logs to ride, stuff to try and jump over, and one nasty lookin hill we call the elevator shaft. The elevator shaft goes strait down then goes right back up again. It's intemidating for even the best riders.

Summary:
Finn Hill Trails are the best around, ive been to some of the more "famous" trails like exit 38 and was very disappointed. Finn Hill trails i have found o be the best. A freeriders paradise with dirt jumps, doubles, drops ranging from 1ft all the way to 10ft. Also check out the ladders and the "Big Dipper" across the street in the St. Edwards Park, also awsome but for the cross country rider.

Recommended Route:
Take Juanita Drive to the QFC and and explore the trails left of the Homles Point Drive Road you will eventually get to a neighbor hood road go across the road and take the trail until u find a clearing where u will find a ladder drop explore to the left of all that and u will find the doubles (2-10ft gaps) and down a hill u will also find some more ladder drops. ALSO CHECK OUT THE FINN HILL BIKE SHOP they can hook u up and do quick fixes for free

Other recommended trails in the same area:
St. Edwards, Sea-Tac, Exit 38, Woodland Park/Green Lake Jumps, and the 76 jumps which are now flattned but the est doubles and dirt jumps for years. Damn that Junaita Woodlands group

Summary:
well, if u like free ride most of my freinds have built all the doubles and technical stuff here. If u find ur seld to the finn hill side and in a clearing area with a tabletop some log drops and bigger latter drop a set of doubles, go to the trail behind the tabletop and go left up the trail are some insane doubles like 5-6 footers. if u just keep looking around u will find little pockets of free ride and technical stuff, some poeple may say these trails are just boring single track, the trails are as good as u make them, u can ride every little thing and jump every thing and get a really fun ride, just keep exploring, if u get lost some one will point u in the right way, if u see a kid on a white stuff and a black roast, thats us, just say hi

Recommended Route:
just go every where

Summary:
Started from St. Edwards state park, parking lot. They wanted $5.00 to park there. Next time I'll find somewhere else to park. The trail was pretty basic in the park, beginner stuff. Then I crossed to the next section south. Trails got better, but nothing too difficult. Some suicidal kids were repairing some elaborate ladders that I don't think I'll be trying any time soon. You'll see what I mean when you go. I traveled all the trails in the second section, they were beginner to intermediate. Mostly beginner. I crossed another street to the south and discovered the elevator shaft. I remembered a friend had told me how intimidating it was to him. I that it looked like nothing. My friend must be a wimp. I headed down without hesitation and wooooosh... Something about gravity and acceleration, it was like a dip on a rollercoaster and shot me up the other side. It was the best part of the trails. I went over it 5 more times, just for fun. Next to it is another shaft, not quite as fast but also quite fun. I continued my back trail riding, crossed to the East to Finn Hill park. It had been about 40 min and I was starting to get into the flow of the area. Watch your speed, there are hikers, dogs and other bikes around many corners! On the way back, I took the trails closest to the road. Now thats where the mountain bike trails are! Switchbacks, and obstacles, it was the best part of the ride. You should check out the side paths, but the ones next to the road are the best. If your looking for "out-doorsy" feelings, you'll get it but you'll hear the continual hum of traffic a few feet away. (populated area). The trails were very try and dusty, at times it was like riding through a flour bowl. I convered 90% of the trails in an hour and a half. I though it was ok enough that I plan on returning, because it's close, and their trails! But the state definitely has a lot better places to ride!

Recommended Route:
If you park at QFC you'll risk impound. (It happend to me at another QFC). If you park at St. Edwards park, you'll have to pay $5.00 but there is lots of parking. Or, don't pay and they might not catch you. Finn Hill park has free parking in the lots, but during the weeks it's isolated and looks like a car prowl magnet area.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Annacortes public lands and Tiger Mountain.
