One thing’s for sure, Washington mountain biking is in a league of its own! Enjoy breathtaking views as you ride up, down, and around the Central Washington Cascades and the Icicle Valley.
Freund Canyon ride
You can leave right from the inn and bike three miles to the trail head, or do the more "American thing" and load the bikes and drive to the trail head. The choice is yours.
The Freund Canyon ride is a strong climb up. It takes a seasoned rider about an hour, with a couple of stops for views and rough spots. Elevation gain is about 1400 feet.
The single track down is just plain fun. It’s not technical, but watch your speed. Many water bars (mounds of piled earth to divert water) cross the trail creating a roller coaster effect. Some folks do this trail twice in a day because the downhill portion is exhilarating!
There are many more mountain bike rides in and around the Icicle Valley. We are just a 25 minute drive from Devil's Gulch, probably the most acclaimed single track in the state. Also, the miles of single track in the Maverick Saddle area of Lake Wenatchee can be heaven for serious riders.
