Located in Moran State Park on the beautiful Orcas Island, the Mount Pickett Loop is a great ride for a first ride with your significant other. Not overly challenging but fun with a taste for what mountain biking is like.
Dual and singletrack with some paved and gravel roads. The trail winds along Mountain Lake which you can spot through the trees. Orcas Island is one of the most beautiful spots in the world and is worth the visit for this fact alone.
How to get there:
From Anacortes, take a ferry to Orcas Island. Hit the main road and follow to the "Y" in the road. Hang a left and proceed to the "T" in the road. Make a right and follow the signs east to Moran State Park. Just past the tiny airfield you'll find the park entrance.
Trail is used by hikers as well.
