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.

Help Create the Future of Mountain Biking on DNR Lands

The lands managed by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) are laced with hundreds of miles of mountain biking trails. In response to legislation that Evergreen was instrumental in influencing and passing, the DNR is now required to develop new guidelines for the management of these trails.

DNR will be asking for public input through a series of public meetings and will form an advisory committee that will include Evergreen.

This is a critical opportunity to work with DNR in a way that enhances the future of mountain biking in Washington. Let's make sure that your voice is heard!

We'll provide more information as it becomes available. Mark your calendars—dates and locations are below.

  • Sedro-Woolley -September 18 -6-8pm
  • Vancouver -September 22 -6-8pm

Do a Pre-Ride Wildfire Safety Check!

If you haven't seen the smoke, you've likely heard it on the news: we're in a record wildfire season here in Washington state. Fire crews are working to contain numerous fires around the state, but a shift in the wind may be all it takes for a fun ride to turn dangerous.

Before you leave for the trail, particularly in central Washington, check out this website to make sure you're steering clear of any problem areas.

Route not safe? Find a new one on the New Trail Guide and upload pictures or a new trail report!
