Stottlemeyer, Pope, Port Gamble Lands..there doesn't seem to be one name for this area. But there is a lot of riding and if you haven't been here before you will have a hard time finding it all. A lot of trail has been added in the past few years. The reviews here are wicked old so I thought I'd update.

The area extends all the way from the Stottlemeyer Road trail head in Poulsbo at the south end (shown on map) to the town of Port Gamble at the north end (beyond map). It is owned by Pope and Talbott, a timber company so it began with all forest service type roads criss-crossed through out. Now there are single track trails all over. Sometimes you have to ride the fire road to connect but more and more you do not. New trails are being built always. The terrain is rolling and mostly in forest (some clear-cut) with lots of technical riding due to logs, roots and mud. Some steep up/down hills too. Flowy trails. The newest fun downhill is Ewok which is 2/3 north.

We night ride here and a friend of mine and I did a night snow ride here too.

This is an area for all abilities and is shared with hikers and horses.

Connect everything and it will take at least 3-4 hours and 15 or more miles. If you start in Port Gamble you can have food and beverage in a fun, cool seaside town after your ride!

Was visiting poulsbo and decided to see if there was anything good to ride in the area. I didn't get to ride a bunch, but there's a lot of cool single-track in the area. not quite as technical as I would have liked, with the exception of one small run where there's a couple of smaller drops.

I bet it'd be more fun if I had more time to explore, but we had a ferry to catch.

What the heck is the guy saying 1-4 miles. there is atleast 15. You can go allthe way to porttownsnd from here. there are an asortmaent of trails out there. there is a new trail that some people are trying to make that starts out with a 4 foot drop into a gap then a bridge. you can find anything you want out there if you just look hard enough. back in the woods there is some prety good trails.

Customer Service

if you go onto the jeep trail in the begining. you take the second left and go up that trail there should be a little drop. take a left when u get to another jeep trail. take that when u come to a y with 2 jeep trails take a right. keep folowing that trail out till u come two another y with 2 jeep trails right before a hill.take a left. then take the first trail on the left. when there is a y take a right then take another right keep following that trail till u come to a flag at the top or i think the first left. this trail is awesome. it is the hard one i described earlier.

I am pretty beginnerish and my riding partner is advanced but we both have a great time on these trails. There are lots of areas to explore. In the last few months there have been new single tracks broken through between the service roads. If you want to get a good work out there are ample uphill service roads to do this. If you head north in using the roads and tracks you can go all the way to Port Gamble (doesn't take that long, maybe an hour).

Customer Service

Just explore. There's a variety of skill levels here, lots of fun, though nothing super advanced.

Lots of fun. This Winter has been pretty wet and you won't get through this area without getting a bit muddy even if you stay on the fireroads. I'm not sure why Tom says its only 1-4 miles....there are at least 5 times that if you venture out a little.

Customer Service

See my review of "Unknown" in Poulsbo, as this is the same trail system and parking place.

This place is fun for an allday ride for all skill levels to ride. I don't know what the hell Tom is saying, 1-4 mi.! There is at least triple that in singletrack if you stick to the old fire roads , but the log ride park was basically torn out so the free-riding there sucks now. Great xc day rides and one or two dh runs that are intermediates, i'd say.

Customer Service

from hwy.305 take Lincoln rd. To Stottlemeyer. Turn on Stottlemeyer to end up1-2 miles past bird electric. You will come to an area with a small parking lot. Park there and enter through either the main gate(down the Hill) or the trail.

If you live in poulsbo, this is a great evening or afternoon ride. Its not something you plan to spend a whole day outing on. The trail is probably 7 miles. I have never brought an odometer, but I will do that one of these days. The most you will need as far as water goes, is a water bottle. I only bring my camelback to carry tools and my helmet cam. This is a great ride for beginners, however expert riders can have fun here. Its just a great ride. IF you are coming from out of town, ride green mountain one day, and Stodalmeyer the next as a fun cool down fide. Great night ride. If you need to directions, go to Silverdale Cyclery (360-692-5508). Anyone there can help you, we even have maps, but it does not include the singletrack. Ask Nudleman, Burkey, or Jeff.

Customer Service

Start at gate, ride up two hills. Take a right onto some wannabe single track. Ride until you come to a y in the trail (you should see some bike obstacles) take a left at the y. The first bit of single track will be on the left. Once on the single track you will come to a part that is scotch broom. Begin looking to turn right into some trees. It will come out to a T, at which point you will take a right. This comes out on a road, the trail continues on the other side about 80 feet, and comes to another road. Take a left. On the right will be a trail through some clear-cut (cant miss it) This trail comes to a freshly graveled road. You can either go right, left or straight. Go straight. Follow the gravel road until the first left, where you will see the rest of the trail through the clear cut, it will then meet up with singletrack through the woods. And, come out at another logging road. Take a right. Ride a little ways and look for a trail on the right. This will be the first down hill. You will come out and have to take a right down a road. When you come to a T go right and head up hill. Keep going uphill until the road takes a major right turn. There will be a trail on the right, right on the turn. More downhill. Come to a road, go right, up hill. The next trail will be on the left, when the hill flattens out. You can follow this trail back to the car, two ways. When you get on this trail there will be an option to turn right, right after a small downhill. The trail to the right is more technical. Make sure that when you come out on a paved section that you take a right to the car.
