Review

As with nearby Icicle Ridge Trail 1570, Freund Canyon Tr6701 is too short to be a destination trail, but is popular with the locals and can serve as a good warm up loop if staying in Leavenworth (plenty of other good rides to justify using Leavenworth for a mountainbike vacation).

Directions: Chumstick Road N. from Leavenworth for 1.5mi, then left on Freund Cr. Rd, just before railroad underpass. Go .5mi and park at TH, where the road forks, or go left and pass through tree farm then park along FR7200 at the gate. View Larger Map. No Map?.

  • TH: From the Friendly Creek Tree Farm gate, pass the return intersection at .4mi then ascend to the sharp, looping curve to the left at the 1.6mi log-staging area and climb the singletrack to the sloping ridgeline.
  • 2.6mi: After reaching the lower end of the sloping ridgeline, pass a singletrack intersection on the left, an alternate downhill route. Complete the ascent then traverse the Tumwater Mountain hillside.
  • 4.6mi: At the ride summit, pass the intersection for the previously mentioned ridgeline downhill, then cross one of the Freund Creek tributaries and begin the descent.
  • 5mi: Pass the FR7701 intersection and continue the downhill, with many whooping berms along the way and a few sharp dips to navigate as well.
  • 6.9mi: Turn sharply to the left as the trail drops off the sloping ridgeline and crosses the Freund Creek tributary then parallels the creek back to the TH.
