Duthie Hill Park (Phase 1 & 2)

Location: Issaquah, WA
Chapter: Statewide
Status: In Progress
Completion Date: 05/01/2019

Evergreen’s biggest and highest profile mountain bike park project, King County’s 130 acre Duthie Hill Park is located at 27101 SE Duthie Hill Rd., on the Sammamish Plateau, 30 minutes from downtown Seattle. It includes six miles of cross country bike trail, two miles of free-ride trail with jumps and built features, a central clearing with a shelter, a kids’ biking area, opportunities for skill building, and more. Trail users range from tots on push bikes and first-time riders to expert mountain bikers.

The park was built through a partnership between the non-profit Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance and King County. It officially opened for mountain biking after the completion of Phase 1 construction in 2010, and has since seen approximately 100,000 rider visits per year. Phase 2 was completed in May of 2012.

Funding came from a combination of grants and overwhelming community support including $225,000 of private donations and thousands of hours of volunteer labor. The Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office also funded a portion of the project, and recently awarded King County Parks an additional grant for a much-needed parking lot completed in November 2013.

In 2018, Evergreen will add a new access trail, including a modified blue trail conversion to enable access for people with disabilities and rebuild all three pump tracks in the park.

Duthie’s trail system is connected to trails on more than 2,000 acres of public open space, including King County’s Mitchell Hill Forest, and Grand Ridge and Preston Ridge parks.
