Route Information & Maps

Each route has a link to the map and cue sheet as a PDF and on the RideWithGPS website. Turns are marked with “Dan Henrys.” Paper maps available at ride start.

Stanwood Loop - 34 miles

Stanwood Map and Cue: PDF    GPS

This is the easiest loop, mostly flat farm roads with a few hills and busy roads to keep it interesting. You'll bike through the Stillaguamish River floodplain, and pass many working dairies and farms. Views (on a good day) of the Olympics and Cascades. Food stop about halfway at Stanwood Middle School.

Granite Falls Loop - 28 miles

Granite Falls Map and Cue:  PDF   GPS

This loop is a little shorter, but a lot hillier! Take this on as a challenge if you want a short but harder loop, or tack it on to another loop to add miles. Views of the Cascades as you ride up the South Fork of the Stillaguamish River. Food stop about halfway at Granite Falls City Park.

Lake McMurray Loop - 44 miles

Lake McMurray Map and Cue: PDF   GPS

Enjoy maximum scenery and rolling hills on our new loop through rural north Snohomish County, with a bit of Skagit County, too (yes, there is chip seal). You'll start and and on the Centennial Trail. In between, pass lots of farms, horses, and woods. Views of Puget Sound, Olympics and North Cascades. Food stops at mile 15 (optional - adds 2 miles and a short, steep climb) and at mile 22 at the restful Bonhoeffer Botanical Gardens.

Haller Park, 1100 West Ave, Arlington, WA, just off Highway 9 and Highway 530 (exit 208 off I-5).

Parking and Event Map

Park near the trail off Railroad Avenue and ride to registration at Haller Park and to the post-ride celebration at Rocket Alley downtown. Haller and Legion Parks have city restrooms. 

Parking in shaded areas, on city side streets, and in business lots open to the public on Sundays.

Free Family Ride - 8 miles

Want a ride for the kids or non-cyclists in the family? Join us for a free, escorted ride out and back on the Centennial Trail. We'll offer snacks at the turnaround point at Bryant Station, 4 miles out. You can keep going, or turnaround sooner if needed. 

The trail is flat and paved. The family ride starts at 11 a.m. - enough time to do one of our loop routes first, if you ride fast. No advanced registration required, but we will have you sign in at the start.
