Freund Creek

Average Rating:    (4 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 6

The main loop follows up Freund Creek road for a few miles to its end. A single track trail continues from there, continuing to snake its way up the side of the canyon ridge. After about 5 miles the trail tops out and comes to a clearing in a saddle. Some other trails can be seen following up the ridge on either side of the saddle, but the main loop starts going down an old fire road grade. The trail continuously goes down for 4 or 5 miles back to Freund Creek road.

Summary:
Freund Canyon is a great skill builder and work out trail. Its 4.5 miles up with a gain of 1500 feet and 4 miles down. A strong mountain biker can ride the whole loop in an hour or less. The trail is relatively smooth and the grade is fairly constant. A strong rider will not need to push anywhere, others may find a couple of spots. The down hill is laced with water bars that need to be taken with some caution. When you get done go ride it again. Where else can you do 3000 feet of elevation gain and cover more than 17 miles in 2 hours all on single track?

Recommended Route:
Ride the loop counter-clockwise. Ignore the sign pointing to Freund Canyon trail, contnue up the dirt road until it turns to single track.

Summary:
Nothing to spectacular. The down is over far to quickly for the effort it takes to reach the top. It took only 15 minuets to complete the downhill. Only worth it if you are truly looking for a short ride.

Summary:
Nothing spectacular a few nice views from the top. Watch out for the first creek as you start the decent, for inexperienced riders that can be tretcherous and they might crash and have their bike go into the creek.

Recommended Route:
Directions are easy especially from the rather attractive lady at the bike store in Leavenworth.

Reviewed by: D , from Washington

Summary:
8.5 miles when doing just the loop, approx. the same amount up and down. Park in town and ride out Chumstick Canyon Road a couple miles for a gentle warmup. Trail recommended by the guys at Das Rad Haus. Great shop and very helpful and they gave me a map. The ride up is a nice climb, first on road, then good singletrack. Once at the saddle, a trail along the ridge (firebreak) intersects the main loop road/trail. I climbed this ridge (hike a bike) to where it once again is on road. You can ride the road to within a few hundred feet of the top of the Mountain and then climb on foot to great views. Ride back partly down the road, but keep eyes open for a burly track that descends the ridge back to the trail you hiked up, then down to the saddle, past the saddle, and eventually down to the trail you climbed originally. This last fork can be deceptive, as you're smoking along. This trip down the ridge is called Ribbed and has drops, jumps, log rides, and other good stunts. The rims were smoking at the bottom, but one can clean it with a sturdy hartail. Ride back up to the saddle, then descend the road/trail full of big waterbars and stay off the brakes for some good air time.

Recommended Route:
Follow Dani's route up to the saddle and up to the top of Tumwater Mountain for the views. Then descend the ridge past the saddle to where it connects with the trail you originally ascended. Ride back up to saddle, then down the other side to complete the original loop.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Xanadu, Devil's Gulch
