Rolling hills in the forest. Great for a hardtail. Can be very muddy. Nice senery in some locations.

Trail Directions
Take 522 toward Monroe; take the Fairgrounds exit, turn left. You should be on the Old Snohomish Monroe Road; follow it for about 3-5 miles(I'm not exactly sure) there is a road that turns off to the left, you can see it going up a big hill, go up that road until you come almost to the end(I think the pavement stops) take a left and your there.

Summary:
Perfect after work ride if you live in the Monroe/Snohomish/Woodinville area. It isn't really technical at all, but you can get some pretty good speed (and air on some of the bumps on the pipeline trail) going on the single track when no one else is around. I have only ridden it in the summer but the trail has always been in good condition. You pretty much need to ride it as fast as you can to get a real work out from it, as there really isn't a huge amount of elevation variation. Ride it on the weekdays at night to avoid all the horses. Also, watch out for massive piles of horse crap, they can ruin your day.

Recommended Route:
For a good workout I park in the parking lot then bike down the hill that you need to come up to get to the parking lot, then come back up and go on the main trail, take a left at the tee. Then follow it to the pipeline trail and ride it a couple of times.

Summary:
This is my local spot (15 minutes by car) and it is a fair amount of fun. It is not very technical though there are challenging sections and the pipeline trail is a hoot (big whoop-de-doos). A couple of hours gets you some varied terrain (very muddy to completely dry), a lot of up/down and lots of trees to look at. A lot of folks have knocked it for not being challenging and for the horses, but if you go early it is pretty much empty

Recommended Route:
Any of the trails are fun, I try to stick to the small amounts of singletrack and make a serious of loops to get back to the pipeline trail for the jumps

Summary:
About half a dozen miles west of Monroe, Lord Hill Regional Park is on the north side of the Snohomish River, northwest of highway 522, south of highway 2. Get there by driving Main Street west out of Monroe, under 522, west towards Snohomish (the road here is no longer Main Street but the old Monroe-Snohomish road). Take 127th Ave south, to the top of Lord Hill. At the end of the road turn west into the signed parking lot for Lord Hill Park. The riding is fun, but not very technical. I was there on a very wet day and I felt the roads/trails shed the water quite well. Most of the riding is on old logging roads, some of which have over-grown into a single-track condition. Perhaps I was missing something, but there does not seem to be that much riding here. There is lots of potential if some trails were put in. This area was logged a very long time ago and never replanted with more conifers. So, contrary to much of the western Cascades, much of the cover is deciduous trees, which gives the area a bit of an east-coast feel. On a cloudy fall day, with the old, hard-pack, logging roads gently winding through a colored deciduous forest, it almost feels like riding an old carriage road in Acadia National Park in Maine.

Recommended Route:
Head over to the pipeline trail, wander down to the river, don't miss the Beaver Pond.

Summary:
Only negative for is the horses (One Sunday I counted 7 horse trailers parked out front) that use this trail. Can't complain since the trails are "Maintained by the Public" and the equestrian clubs do all the work. Horses can get spooked by bikes so you're often asked to get off and walk your bike around them. This also causes one to watch their speed.

Recommended Route:
All are good. Pipeline is quite steep in places.
