Zanadoo - Trail, Leavenworth, Washington

Zanadoo - Trail, Leavenworth, Washington

DESCRIPTION

Crazy, Sick, Fun Relatively easy fireroad duo track climb up to the ridgetop and then a knarly steep, narrow singletrack descent w/no room for error. Two highly technical sections. The first is a hairpin turn followed by a nasty 6 to 8 foot boulder drop that's rideable followed a short time later by a huge slick rock that's super steep w/just enough loose gravel and sand on it to keep you travelling at a good clip before bailing off another steep drop which is also rideable but tricky. If you can find it you will most likely really like it or hate it.

Great trail. Easy climb, wicked decent. A true technical brake burner, at least until you know the trail better. The views are breath taking, so is the downhill. enjoy the view at the top, but don't take your eye off the trail, or you may be down before you are ready.

FUN FUN FUN. This trail starts out pretty calm. Not the uphill part, but when you start your decent. About half way, it gets pretty fun. I would leave an XC bike at home collecting dust. This is a sweet trail.

right on 7400. If not shuttling, go up and park at meadow, there is a old broke down shed there, that is about half way between trail head and finish. Climb up the road until you see a JEEP road on the left. Go up up up until you think you are lost. You will see the single track at the top of the ridge.

This trail is great. I started riding this trail in 2000 and it was just becoming a trail. It gained popularity really quick because you can ride the entire way. I used to start out in Leavenworth on my hartail XC and ride to the trail where I then rode up the fire road and connected at the top of the trail. Then it's a wild ride to the bottom with technical, steep, fast downhill. This is a trail for advanced riders. I suggest it be done on a downhill/freeride bike although I still had fun riding it on my XC when I couldn't afford a DH bike. Can't wait to go back and ride it on my DH!

This is a great ride for those that want to start getting into some "freeriding". Although definetly not for beginners, it's very doable with an XC bike as long as you like a challenge and are willing to walk a couple small sections. The loop can easily be ridden in 2 hours and has great views.

Customer Service

Park at the pullout on FS7400 just after FS7401 branches to the left. Pedal approximately 2 miles up the road until you reach the obvious singletrack leaving on the left (this is also where another road branches to the right). Climb moderately up the singletrack until you reach an opening and singletrack intersection. Go left and start the descent. When the trail exits onto the road, turn right and find you're car just around the corner.

I did the trail with my DH bike but I had to hike up to the top of the trail, beautiful views from up there. Sweet ride down, lots of fun with some jumps and a sweet slickrock section thats tons of fun if you can ride it, most of the trail is singletrack with no room for error (might fall off). At the end there is a north shore style stunt which is also tons of fun too. This trail is perfect for a freeride bike and a freerider. the trail is doable on an XC bike but you just cannot have the same experience on an XC bike as you can a FR or DH bike on this trail.
