Evergreen Crank Sisters Beginner-Intermediate Ride at Japanese Gulch, upper trailhead on 19th St, just off Goat Trail Loop Rd. Please look at Google maps before you come. Type in "Japanese Gulch 19th St Neighborhood Trailhead" or in Apple Maps "1199 19th St Mukilteo, WA 98275"

Take WA-525/Mukilteo Speedway to Goat Trail Rd. The road will wind until you come to a 4-way stop sign. GO STRAIGHT thru the stop sign. The road now becomes Goat Trail Loop Rd. Follow this windy, neighborhood road until 19th St. It's a cul-de-sac that has a Trailhead for the upper Japanese Gulch trails. Park in the cul-de-sac.


This is a ladies-only ride. Weather calls for...well, it's January, so anything, but most likely, rainy and cold. But, if you dress for it, the puddles are amazing! :) These trails are on the "flatter, upper section". We will not be going down the steep hillside to ride on the other side of the tracks. There will be some doubling back over trails, keeping in mind they always look and feel different going the reverse. There is enough trails to get a good long ride in and we can session anything. This a decent area to get good at roots. I love these trails and have wanted to host a ride out in my neck of the woods, some come enjoy them with me!


Meet at the parking lot at , at 09:50am.
