Summary:
There are miles of trails. I had a blast at the park, I spent two days exploring and only covered about half of the trails. The park and the trails were very well kept and there was a little bit of everything but mostly technical single track. I didn't see another rider either of the days I was there, not on the trails themselves anyway.

Recommended Route:
All Of them.

Summary:
This is a nice beginner/intermediate XC ride. Minimal climbs, both single-track & fire road. The weather I'm told is part of the sun belt, so it's usually better than the mainland. The scenery is pleasant, a mix of riding through the forests and clear cut. You really don't see anyone except bikes. Afterwords there's the beach to kick back at. There's a bunch of campsites too to make it a weekend on Whidbey. Can't ask for more.

Recommended Route:
Did the Zilly route.

Summary:
I rode this area once when it was raining. It was super hella muddy. So much so that you can't possible climb some of the hills. I could barely even walk up them without slipping. The view from the bluff trail was awesome. I'd like to go back next time when it's dry.

Recommended Route:
Um.. dunno. Started from the park entrance and worked my way to the bunker then down to the beach then back.

Summary:
I didn't get in more than 3 hours the one time I was there but can tell you it's a fun, well maintained and scenic area. If you need to ride terrain that's so intense it scares you constantly then this may not be the place for you. Otherwise it's a real nice area.

Recommended Route:
Anywhere, you could stay in Coupeville and ride to the trail system easily. Or, you could take the ferry over from Pt Townsend and have an awesome ride on paved bike lanes and trails to get you to the trail system.

Summary:
Trails always in great shape, perfect workout/training for the longer rides/races. Plenty of challenging dumps/bumps/roots/muck&mirer! Go for a couple of hours, no lunch required but bring a camera or oil paints!
Loop trails together for longer rides and more leg/lung workouts. Great trails for all levels.

Recommended Route:
Cedar Hollow-Kettles-HokeyKaDoDo-Bluff-Braveheart-Shepards Crook-Pidgeon Ridge-Fisher Ridge (N.Loop)

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Anacortes Forest Lands
