Summary:
moderate climb in.will pass many homemade jumps that you can hit on the way out, jumps range from moderate to extreme. trail gets very technical in some areas with lots of roots, rolling banks, long and narrow boardwalks(some only 6 inches wide)with tight turns, log barracades you can dig into and ride over.dont know trail length.guessing 5 to 6 miles in then you turn around. awesome fun trail.

Recommended Route:
go to anderson lake parking on anderson lake rd off of highway 20 heading to port townsend.park at entrance to anderson lake recreation area.make a right out of parking area back onto anderson lake rd.within 100feet aproximately a trai will appear on your left.take that trail.follow trai as it heads towards gibbs lake.eventually you will come to an accesss road with a great view of discovery bay.this is where this trail ends,due to private property.turn around and follow same trail back to your car.

Summary:
Great trail to ride if you are looking for one out of PT. Rooty, rolling terrain, dark and jungle like. Short burst climbs and quick downs keep you pedalling and on your toes. It's all about how fast you go, right? There are up-hill step-ups, log rides, and some nasty but short root laden climbs.

I had a great time riding here for a single shot. Might feel limiting if you only had this place to ride, but it's still great.

Recommended Route:
basically the same routes as below...enjoy!

Summary:
If your in the area it is worth it. trail system is small but fun. Some log rides and small drops. Mostly technical trails with lots of roots, some logs to ride, and rocky sections(impossibowl). Trails are well marked. Chalenge when wet.

Recommended Route:
From parking lot up the technical to impossibowl(try and ride the big log), rollercoster to road and around the lake trail. go swimming afterwards.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Anderson Lake Trails, Ft. Warden in PT, Ft. Flagler on Marrowstone Island

Summary:
All single track without motorcycle damage. No drops that will put you over the bars, however roots are a factor on most of the trails. Fairly level to rolling terrain with no steep loose climbs. The Lake Side trail is the most technical I rode due to roots.

Recommended Route:
Doc Werner to Americ-Corp, Scout Trail, Impossibowl Water Tank Downs (what for nettles here.)

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Green Mountain
