We need your support to help us build this trail.  Evergreen has committed $30,000 match over two years, as well as 2000 hours of volunteer labor.  Please donate today or join a work party so we can bring you an amazing new trail to ride.  With views!

Big views, big vert, just outside North Bend

The Olallie Project is secured and funded, with Evergreen crews currently working on site.  The trail starts near Rattlesnake Lake, just a few minutes outside of North Bend and only 40 minutes from Seattle.

The first several miles amble up Cedar Butte through pristine forest, then turn east and ascend the flanks of Mt. Washington.  There is a cliff along the trail, with multiple opportunities for stunning views.  The trail then changes to road-trail conversion before climbing a rock cliff that will be difficult to build, but will be a stunning section of trail.  This connects to another road-trail conversion section, before finishing on singletrack just below the summit of Mt. Washington.

Boxley Blowout historical site.  The Olallie trail starts at Cedar Butte.  Just to the SW of Cedar Butte is the site of the Boxley Blowout of 1918 and some interesting geographical features.

the first 5 miles of trail are open; the rest is still under construction and closed. The trail will top out at 3700 feet, so expect snow in the winter.
