Mountain Bike Resource - Trails - Devil's Gulch Ride Summary
Simply stated, Devil's Gulch is one of Washington's best loops. Follow well graded logging roads uphill for 11.5 miles. You will have several viewpoints as you near the top. The 12 mile trail decends gradually allowing plenty of opportunities to haul ass. About the only obstacle on this trail is your ability to fight the "G" force as you round a few sharp corners. Be careful not to ride too fast, though, as you may end up making an unsuspecting hiker your obstacle. Remember, it only takes one collision to close an entire trail to bikers. This one's too valuable to loose.
