Hello, I am a frequent dog walker in Goss Lake woods. Recently I have noticed quite a bit of trail widening activity around Salal lane and Edgewood trail. It looks like someone with a chainsaw cleared an 8-10 foot wide path by hacking the native plants (salal and huckleberry mostly). Esthetically, it looks terrible, and I am not sure why trail widening is being done. The trails are all heavily used and are quite beaten down, although they are narrow in spots. Possibly the mountain bikers don't want vegetation brushing their legs? I do think clearing the native plants in this fashion promotes more invasive plants like blackberry and weeds to take hold. Blackberry will feel much worse than salal when it brushes legs. I am wondering how others feel about chainsaw activity and widening trails in Goss Lake woods.

Wow! I really liked all the trails in that area, they were fun, small area but fun! Tight singletrack and logs all over. I was in the northwest area of Washington for 1 1/2 years for something and I'm from Utah. I thought it was a lot of fun, I really liked the trees and all the vegetation. It smelled so good. The rollercoaster trails were fun!

Although I have only ridden here once, these trails are the best I have ridden on since moving to the area. I plan on making this my regular area to ride, it was a blast. There are some nice winding trails, a couple of steep downhill areas. Very fun riding and not alot of roots, which the other trails on Whidbey Island have. There are some areas that are wide open (big enough for a car) and relatively smooth, Also there is plenty of single track. You can also find trail maps for DNR/Metcalf (the actual name of the area) and Fort Ebey at www.traxmaps.com

Happy Riding

From Oak Harbor take Hwy 20 South for about 31 miles. Turn LEFT onto Bayview Road. Turn Left onto Andreason Road. Go right on Lone Lake Rd. Then finally turn right onto Keller RD. Trail heads will be on your left. If you ride on Edgewood trail first you can find a box containing trail maps a couple hundred yards in.
