Over 2,800’ of shuttle access vertical is now possible in Washington.

Tomorrow, October 19, a new trail system at North Mountain in Darrington is complete, officially open and ready to ride!

Completing this project marks a major milestone for both Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance (Evergreen) and Washington Department of Natural Resources (DNR). North Mountain delivers on a post Oso Landslide promise to help spur economic activity in and around Darrington.  

After opening a beginner and intermediate skill building ride park in 2017, the new upper mountain trails round out the trail network with a unique user-experience that’s unmatched elsewhere in our state. 

As part of creating a one-of-a-kind experience in Darrington, Evergreen and DNR collaborated to develop a 1-year pilot to allow Class 1 e-MTBs onto this brand new network.  

“Piloting e-bike access is ideal on a brand-new purpose-built trail system without prior use or management objectives that require modification,” says Evergreen Executive Director Yvonne Kraus. “In partnership with DNR and other state agencies in carefully evaluating access opportunities for the fast-growing e-MTB community, we believe we are on track in our approach to carefully, responsibly, and sustainably introduce e-MTB access where it makes sense.”    

To help DNR and Evergreen gather e-MTB user data, experiences and other feedback, we encourage everyone to go ride North Mountain and complete DNR’s survey. Data will be evaluated by both DNR and Evergreen staff for ongoing e-MTB policy and access decisions.

Read on to see why we are excited about this new trail network and are totally convinced you will be too!
