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 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, theDNR is now required to develop new guidelines for the management of these trails. Many of the goals and objectives that DNR set for the Recreational Trail Policy remain unclear, but what is certain is that it has enormous implications for the way agency trails are developed, maintained, and used around the state. As part of the process of developing the new policy, 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! The dates for open houses are listed below. Find one in your area and make an impact by attending. Here are some points you might consider making to DNR:
