This is new trail project that is currently being designed by DNR, Evergreen, and the local community. Construction started on the lower mountain in May for a skills building area for beginner to advanced riding. Planning, design and permitting is still under way on the upper mountain. We're hoping to start construction of the upper mt trails late summer 2016. Project Deadline: summer 2017. Earliest trail opening: TBD.
Evergreen is partnering with the State of Washington and DNR to turn Darrington's North Mountain into a mountain bike destination. This is the potential for a showcase trail system that brings economic development to the town of Darrington and has the potential to be one of Washington's premier trail systems.
The concept calls for a skills park at lower elevation with 5-7 miles of trail with jumps, skill features, and lower elevation loops that attract year round riders.
The bike project will connect to a large stacked loop system with intermediate and advanced trails. Multiple trails will be shuttleable and there is an old fire lookout at the summit. These upper trails will be up to 19 miles with 3200 feet of vert. This is going to be a large and varied trail system. It's going to be good!
