Location: Leavenworth, WA

Getting there:

  • Head north on Chumstick Road out of Leavenworth.
  • At 1.5 – 2 miles turn left on Freund Creek road, it you go under the railroad underpass, you’ve gone too far.
  • Park at end of road where main arterial turns left.
  • Ride up FRS 7200 through the tree farm.  (note: keep left at the first two forks as you ride FRS 7200) Basically head uphill.

Current Conditions: The trail is in great condition.  There is very little mud from run off, though the two streams on the lower section of the downhill are about half way up to your hub.  After the first stream crossing at the top of the descent they have added some “S” curves to slow things down.  The tread is new so it’s lose, be careful.

What to expect: You can expect to suffer from the start.  This ride goes up from the moment you leave your car.  There is very minimal recovery on the way up to the saddle where the descent starts.  The plus is you’ll be going slow and you can enjoy the views the climb has to offer and it has many to offer.

The descent is one where you can go almost as fast as you like expect you better know which water bars are going to throw you.  We were told there was something like 80 of them on the course.  Most of the water bars are not that bad on the descent but there are a few that will send you ass over head if your not careful.

Expect a lap to range from 45 to 1.5 hours depending on your fitness.
