Mountain Bike Resource - Trails - Frost Mountain Ride Summary
One of the states best loops and also one of the most physically demanding. This ride climbs 3,000 feet on well maintained scenic forest roads to the trailhead. On the way back down the trail will command your full attention as it cuts a narrow path through the trees on the side of a steep fern and moss covered hillside. Be prepared for a series of steep climbs and decents on trail before you're through with this one.
Directions To Trailhead
Heading towards Sequim (from southeast) on Hwy 101 turn left onto Louella Road. This is an easy road to miss. If you have passed the Sequim Bay State Park then you have gone about .1 mile too far. Once on Louella Road continue for about 1 mile and then turn left onto Palo Alto Road at a "T" intersection. In about 6 miles the pavement will end and you will soon reach a fork. Go left onto road #2950 and continue for about 3 miles until you reach the Gold Creek trailhead. The trailhead is about .1 mile before you cross the Dungeness River Bridge.
