We’re in Washington for the blessing of our two new nephews this weekend and found a fun spot to go mountain biking. It’s called Cowiche Canyon — the mesa above the canyon is criss-crossed with single and doubletrack. The trail in the canyon below was a railroad line in a former life. The tracks have been removed and turned into a trail for hikers, bikers, and equestrians (all of whom we saw). It was a little over 8 miles on the loop we chose; I brought the GPS and here’s the elevation profile and an overview of the trail in Google Earth.
