The Tree Farm is a true Northwest gem. The area is criss-crossed with fire roads connecting the miles and miles of singletrack. Though the beauty of it is you will hardly have to touch the fire roads at all if you don't want to. Throughout the area there is narrow, twisting singletrack that parallels the roads. It will take you several trips to fully explore this area. Also if you explore enough, you will come across a large metal sculpture in the middle of nowhere with a spectacular view of Lake McMurray.
Many of the trails are closed from November 1st through May 1st because the trails don't do well during our wet winter months. The dirt roads are open year round.
How to get there:
From Everett go North On I-5. Exit 215 (300th Street). Turn right onto 300th Street.
Follow 300th for about 6 miles to its end. You'll see a gate to the left with a trail skirting around to the left of that. This is where the trail begins. There is no parking here so head back on 300th to the intersection and park there.
Follow 300th street for about .7 miles then turn left onto English GR Rd. After 1.2 miles on English GR Rd, turn right onto 316th St. NW. Then after 1.7 more miles, turn left onto 3rd Ave. NE up a gravel road and park at the top by the gate. (Parking here provides less climbing than option 1.
