Visit Mount Vernon, Washington

Biking

There’s awesome scenery throughout Mount Vernon and Skagit with plenty of diversity through farmland and historic towns, alongside bays, and on challenging roads and forest trails.

Little Mountain Trails

Approximately nine miles of family friendly trails await you at Little Mountain Park. This destination is ideal for hiking with kids or without, and includes some multi-use trails as well. In total, the park now has over 6.5  miles of single-track bike trails plus, there’s the 1.4 mile road for those who prefer a smooth, quick way up to save their energy for the ride down. There’s some trails that can get a little challenging, with narrow spaces and a few steep gradients, but overall the course is best suited for beginners and intermediate riders. There’s a lot of effort put into keeping the trails maintained and accessible at all times, making it a great place to learn the ropes of mountain biking.

Chuckanut Drive

Approximately 21 miles on State Route 11, it is between just North of Burlington and the Fairhaven suburb of Bellingham. This dramatic cliff side route hugs the base of Chuckanut Mountain weaving its way through evergreen forests along the rocky shoreline of Chuckanut Bay.

Cascade Trail

22.5-mile rail trail follows the abandoned Burlington Northern grade connecting the towns of Sedro Woolley and Concrete, and can be accessed from three trailheads off of the North Cascades Highway.

The Skagit Bicycle Club has websites for maps of member’s favorite rides and a calendar listing monthly rides where nonmembers are welcome to ride along.

The Skagit County Bike Map can also help plan your cycling adventures!
