Bellingham offers world-class mountain biking right outside your front door. Prized for its evergreen forests, hilly terrain and views of Mount Baker, this coastal city in NW Washington has four well-manicured mountains within a short drive (or bike ride) from downtown—it’s hard to find another place in the PNW with as much access, and hero dirt! With 3,000 acres and 108 trails totaling more than 60 miles of ridable terrain, Galbraith Mountain is king, but there are four other biking areas and more in the making. What really separates Bham is its bike-centric community: the result is a committed group of trail developers and maintainers, high-quality trails for all levels, and top-notch guides to help you step up your technical riding game.

I am totally blown away by how incredible this tour was! Ike met me at the trail parking lot, had a bike, helmet, water bottle and a few trail snacks ready to go. Basically all that I had to do was show up on time! Ike was very knowledgeable of the trail system, the area and all around just a great guy to hang out with for the afternoon. It was like I was out riding with a good friend.
He was very considerate of my skill level and showed me an excellent variety of trails that showed me what Galbraith had to offer, challenged my riding abilities and even just offered some stunning views of the mountains. Highest recommendation for Ike and Dig deep tours. If you are near Bellingham and interested in seeing what the area has to offer for mountain biking then give Dig deep a try. It doesn’t get any better than this! Keep in mind I’m not even getting into mentioning how incredible these trails are!
We enjoy outdoor activities and this one fits the bill. I can also verify the Galbraith Mountain Biking trails can be a labyrinth of confusion if you aren’t familiar. Just book with Dig Deep Tours and Ike will hook you up with trails that match your skill level and all you have to do is mash the pedals and follow. Mountain biking fun will ensue. If you’re looking to mountain bike at Galbraith and don’t know the trail system, give Dig Deep Tours a call and you’ll have a rewarding experience. Ike is a great guy, getting a small business established that provides a great service to anyone new to mountain biking in Bellingham, WA. We visited from Anchorage, AK and would do it again in a heartbeat. Go for it!
My partner and I spent 2 days with Ike riding the some amazing trails in Bellingham! Before we found Dig Deep we were overwhelmed with the maze of trails on the maps and trying to chose the right stuff to ride. Ike asked about our skill level and our desires and brought us on the perfect rides. We had such a good time in this amazing place with this amazing guide! We’ll definitely be working with Dig Deep again and can’t recommend them enough!
Had a fantastic morning mountain biking with Ike! He had everything prepared – bikes, helmets, water. He came up with a great intro to mountain biking route for us and adapted to our needs while still helping us learn and grow. Ike is super friendly and fun to be with. I highly recommend Dig Deep Tours!
I was in Bellingham for a limited amount of time with plenty of non mountain biking obligations. Dig Deep really let me make the most of the free time I did have. Can’t say enough about how well Ike communicated with me; email, text, phone, etc. Literally zero complaints. Thanks for the help putting together a killer day on Galbraith.

What you get on this adventure:
Mountain bike and helmet rentals are available for an added fee of $40 for a half-day tour and $55 for a full-day tour.
What’s not included:
For this Bellingham guided adventure, you will need to be able to bike for around 4 hours, depending on the itinerary you choose. The day will typically involve riding between 5 and 10 miles with 1,000-2,000 feet of climbing, but this is not a rule. After booking, your guide will determine the group’s skill level and capabilities and cater the day to your specific abilities. Keep in mind, opting for the full day option means more biking, which is strenuous even if you stay on beginner level trails.

You will progress at a level that is consistent with your comfort. Once you finally get the hang of trail riding, you will only want more! Likewise, if you are an intermediate or advanced rider, your guide will find the appropriate trails for you as well.
