This trail has a directional up and down hill. Spectacular, but rigorous 8 mile loop with 1780 vertical gain per lap. Each lap has four creek crossings, challenging single track climb, and a RAD “flow” trail with massive wall rides and berms for the ride down throughout the most spectacular scenery.
From Highway 2 turn onto Chumstick highway (this is a left turn if you are coming from Stevens Pass, right if you are coming from Blewett Pass/Wenatchee). Turn left onto Freund Canyon road (about 1-1.5 miles out Chumstick highway, if you go under the railroad track you have gone too far). Parking is on the left hand side of the road.
You can also ride Fruend Canyon from the Leavenworth Ski Hill parking lot. From the Ski Hill parking lot ride 4 the Boyz trail till it reaches the Fruend Canyon Trail. From here turn right and ride the lower section of Fruend Canyon till you reach the Fruend Canyon road. Turn left on the road and continue to climb to the top of the Fruend Canyon trail. On the descent be sure not to pass the 4 the Boyz trail for your ride back to Leavenworth Ski Hill.
