The Foothills trail is an often overlooked MTB destination. This is partly due to the fact that it is an ORV trail frequented by the moto crowd on nice weekends and partly because the initial climb is sustained and takes some fitness. Don't let this deter you. This trail is scenic with panoramas from the Elwha valley across town and up Hurricane Ridge. It is also conventiently located up Little River Rd from the top of Black Diamond Rd. While the trail is relatively short (9 miles), it is a nice workout with some great riding.
Recommendation: Go early in the morning or on weekdays for a better chance to avoid dirt bikes
Parking: Parking for the Foothills is approximately 2 miles up Little River Rd across from the yellow gate on the right side of the road.
