Trails

Get your bike & come out to ride some flowy XC greens & blues around Duthie Hill Mountain Bike Park. We'll meet by the restrooms at the Duthie Hill Parking Lot at 8:30 am, then ride to the clearing together. We'll start off with a nice Bootcamp loop (green), then do (blues) Step it Up & Movin' On.

We can continue riding laps on any of the trails, based on what the group wants to do. As such, the ride may officially end in the clearing if some want to ride more & others are done. This is a Beginner-Mediate ride, and a great warm-up for more difficult trails as we progress into the Fall, or just a super-chill day.

About the Ride/ Grunt Rating

From the Evergreen website:

  • 4 flowy XC trails that can be connected into a ~5 mile loop
  • The XC trails are mostly smooth, buff, flowy, contoured singletrack with bermed turns (particularly Bootcamp and Step It Up). Some are a bit more technical than others (Movin' On and Braveheart). All XC trails have advanced and challenging optional features including logrides, ladders, drops & skinnies.

Directions

Meet by the bathrooms at the Duthie Hill Parking Lot at 8:30 am. Text me if you want me to send driving directions to your phone. Please be on time :)
