Join the U.S. Forest Service, the Town of Skykomish, King County Parks and the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance as we formally open the Alpine Baldy trail!

At 11am, we'll gather at Skykomish's pump track for an in-town opening celebration followed by a casual group ride up the trail at 2pm. The trailhead is about a 25 minute drive from downtown Skykomish.

In 2017 we dubbed Skykomish the next “Trail Town” of Washington. Now, we’re ready to debut part one of this transformation.

On Saturday, July 20th, we'll formally open Alpine Baldy, the highest elevation trail Evergreen has built to date and the first U.S. Forest Service mountain bike trail in the Skykomish Ranger District.

Topping out at 5,000’, Alpine Baldy is a 7.5 mile out-and-back trail with a mix of both road to trail conversion and virgin singletrack.

Riders who tough out the big climb are rewarded with a stunning 360-degree view of the surrounding Cascades in a gorgeous alpine meadow. This trail is an absolute MUST ride!
