Join Evergreen Central at Devil’s Fest & The Darkside Festival 9/27-28!
Come join fellow mountain bike lovers at this all-inclusive trailwork and outdoor endurance sports festival! Centered at Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort in the Cascade Mountains, this is a weekend of trailwork, music, races, food, and more!
Spend mornings at Devil's Fest wearing work gloves and breaking a sweat giving something back to the trails you love. Then sneak in some rides to test your skills!
Live music starts at 4pm with local acts, a beer garden sponsored by Badger Mountain, Icicle, Saddle Rock, and Iron Horse breweries—and tasty grub from Mission Ridge Resort. Or join in the trail races for riders and runners with energy left to burn!
No matter what you do, you'll end up exhausted and replenished and clamoring for more! And remember—all proceeds go to support local trails!
For years Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance has worked with its partners to make this fun-filled day a reality. Kids riding with parents, siblings, and friends on every kind of bike on every kind of trail all have one thing in common—a huge smile!
This year's event includes guided trail rides, an obstacle course for the little ones, an exciting jump show from local and pro riders, costume bike parade and barbecue, and tons of prizes! It’s a terrific way to get kids outside in the woods having fun on bikes.
Come join us at this family event! All ages are welcome – from tots to teens – they just need a working bike and helmet to participate.
So bring your kids, your neighbor’s kids, or your friends with kids and come ride bikes on the trails with us!
Volunteers are also needed to make the day a success; please consider joining us as a volunteer and signing up here.

Evergreen and DNR Announce Partnership for New Trail on East Tiger Mountain
Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance is excited to announce a new trail development project in Tiger Mountain State Forest.
Washington State Department of Natural Resources has been awarded grant funding, and entered into an agreement with Evergreen to construct a new trail that will run from near East Tiger Summit and connect to the upper trailhead near Hwy 18.
Almost 2 miles long, the proposed trail will provide a more challenging descending route than the existing options in the forest. Its addition will help develop a trail network that provides a quality riding experience for a broader range of rider skill and fitness levels.
This further extends the partnership between DNR and the mountain biking community. The result of this partnership has expanded trail riding from 7 miles only three years ago to almost 12 miles of sustainable and fun trails today.
The new trail has been designed and work will begin immediately. But we need your help to meet the mountain biking community’s commitment to Tiger Mountain and make this new trail a reality. Watch the
calendar for work parties and sign up to volunteer. This is an opportunity to build trail – by bikers, for bikers.
