A partnership between Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance and the Washington Department of Natural Resources, Raging River Phase I trail construction consists of 15+miles of ridgeline trail in a ‘lollipop’ formation, offering riders the option for a loop at the ride midpoint.
DNR constructed an approximately 4-mile stacked loop system out of Exit 27, allowing access to exclusive climbing-only and descent-only trails from the Snoqualmie Point trailhead to the first saddle. Evergreen trail crews ran 4-5 excavators between 2500-3500’ of elevation (to stay ahead of the snow) in order to build the additional 6 miles of trail required for the completion of Phase I.
Phase I of the Raging River Project was completed fall 2017. The current Snoqualmie Corridor Recreation Plan calls for up to 40 miles of trail in the region, allowing for an eventual connection to Tiger Mt and offering more distance than can be completed in an all-day epic.
Phase II was completed in the summer of 2020. With this, the Canyon Creek DH trail, the new Raging Tiger 2-way trail, and an extension to the pre-existing 'Physical Therapy' descent trail are now open!
