Sucia Island State Park

Average Rating:    (5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 1

Single-track rolling along the sandstone cliffs with serious roots & drops, to rolling paths wide enough for a car. From beginner to technical, you will love it! I was fortunate enough to be one of the first people on the NorthShore Charters Mtn Bike trip & it was unbelievable! Just becareful along the sandstone cliffs, the fall into the puget sound is not a pleasant one!

Trail Directions
The only access to this state park is by boat. The trails are open year-round to bikes & you will be lucky to see any other bikers around, since mostly pleasure boaters go here. To charter a ride to this amazing island, contact North Shore Charters on Orcas Island at (206) 940-4206, or check out their website at www.sanjuancruises.net. Capt. Marty can get up to 6 bikes on in a trip & it is only about a 15 minute ride!

Summary:
Sucia has it all. Easy fire roads, cliff-hugging trails (remember LWYWTG, NWYD), gnarly singletrack, very technical terrain, scary black diamond challenges, steep climbs, fast descents, rocks, roots and ruts. Best of all were the views: tide-sculpted rocky shoreline, 30’-long seakelp, bloody Madrona’s, the Puget Sound, Whistler over here, Mount Baker over there. Overall, not a hard day of riding, just the right mix of aerobic challenge, interesting trails, campsites and wilderness; kind of what Huck and Tom would like if they’d had dual suspension. If you want harder trials, swim to Bellingham or the North Shore.
