Here it is... The Big Kahuna of sorts.

 

Evergreen is in the midst of building some of the rowdiest lines in our organization's history on North Mountain in Darrington and we need your help!

Join us Saturday, October 13th for a work party hosted by professional Evergreen trailbuilders.

 

We're looking for volunteers who...

  • Are excited about the new North Mountain trail system in Darrington
  • Enjoy camping with incredible views
  • Like to ride gnarly lines– these trails are steep and raw. Enthusiastic beginners are welcome– but testing the trails will require a solid base of mountain bike experience
  • Have access to a truck/4x4 vehicle. Expect to drive ~15 miles of rough dirt road to access the work party site
  • Are setup for shuttling. Volunteers capable of carrying 4+ bikes would be a huge help 
  • Have some prior trailwork experience
  • Want to come back! North Mountain offers dedicated volunteers a chance to really dig in and shape the style of these trails

 

What you can expect from us...

  • Trailwork guidance from professional Evergreen trailbuilders
  • Previews of some of the coolest trails currently being built in Washington State
  • Snacks/beverages and work tools
  • A damn good time in a family friendly environment!

 

Logistics

The work party will begin at 9am. Exact meeting location is at the gate just below the summit of North Mountain where the fire lookout is. Plan for an hour drive from the town of Darrington. Camping on North Mountain on Friday evening is encouraged. This makes for a more relaxed Saturday morning wakeup and a chance to enjoy a sunset from the summit of North Mountain!

Bring clothes/riding apparel for all weather conditions. Work/hiking boots required for trailwork.

Plan for a full day of trailwork with time to "sample the goods" later in the day.
