Alpine Baldy (Phase 1)

Location: Skykomish, WA
Chapter: 1
New Mileage: 7.5 miles
Status: In Progress
Completion Date: 12/31/2017

Just a few miles northeast of the town of Skykomish, Alpine Baldy Phase I boasts an upper trail terminus at 5,000’ of elevation with a 360-degree view of the surrounding valley from a bald peak vantage point.  A joint venture between the USFS (via a NOVA grant), King County Parks (Community Partnership Grant) and Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance, Alpine Baldy is the first legal mountain bike trail in the Skykomish Ranger District. 

Detailing a 15-mile out-and-back system, trail plans consists of 5 miles of road-to-trail conversion and 2.5 miles of new single track presently under construction. Evergreen crews are currently on-mountain roughing-in with machines from the bottom up; volunteer crews will be needed soon as work can only be done in the summers and we only have limited time before the snow shuts us down at 5000 ft.  

Alpine Baldy Phase I is currently under construction with a total completion deadline of fall 2017; Phase II will add the western leg and complete the loop.
