Summit Mountain Bike Park: Construction Update

TRAIL CONSTRUCTION UNDERWAY! Trail builders from Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance have been working hard on two trails on Summit property this summer.

More About This Summer's Work

The Summit Mountain Bike Park has taken a huge leap forward this summer. Thanks to the crew at EMBA we've been able to break ground and begin the dirt work on several trails. These trails are on Summit property which allows us to make some great progress this summer and get a head start on the entire park while we work through the approval process on USFS land. This area provides us with some steeper terrain and unique features to build several of our more technical trails, with a serious nod to our trails of the past. Think organic, techy, steep and ridiculously fun! However, if that's not your style, don't fret because our plans include plenty of flow trails that will cater to a wide variety of riding styles and ability levels as well!

 

As Washington state continues to further develop it's mountain bike trail network we're working hard to ensure that The Summit lift-accessed trails will be true to the PNW yet allow access for all. Working with the EMBA team we aim to make The Summit Bike Park a distinctive experience for everyone.

 

We have been working closely with our partners in recreation at the United States Forest Service. The project has made significant progress in recent weeks and we plan to have additional information about the project on public land this fall. Stay tuned!


SUMMER 2019

TRAIL BUILDING

  • Central DH Trail
    This trail is proposed to be a fun, yet highly technical expert downhill trail making the most of the fall line through the trees and rock slabs of Summit Central. A throwback to the raw and rowdy days of our past.
  • Blue Tech Line
    Currently nicknamed "Lost & Found" (for all the equipment we've been finding!), this intermediate level technical trail will combine a variety of features and a smidge of flow to aid in the mix of progression.
  • Connector Trails
    Part of building on private land means we need a fun flowy trail to send riders back to the Silver Fir Chair.

We understand this is an incredibly exciting addition to our mountain and know you're all stoked learn more about the progress made. Keep in mind these trail segments are under construction and are not open for any use.
