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.

The New and Improved Evergreen Trail Guide is Live!

Our new Trail Guide is now your definitive source for information about Washington singletrack. The Trail Guide replaces our venerable trail wiki with…

  • New trails, more GPS tracks, and embedded video
  • Mobile-friendly, Smartphone functionality
  • Evergreen recommended “Premium” trails are separately searchable
  • GeoPDF maps for trails as they become available
  • “Trail Finder” view showing thumbnail trail images and key stats
  • Update the Trail Guide and win cool prizes!

    The Trail Guide relies on user-generated content. So we need your help updating our trails listings and info. Post your best new trails or polished trip reports in August and you could win sweet shwag in our drawing at the end of the month.

    FYI, if you had an account on the wiki, you do need to set up a new account on the Trail Guide.

    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!
