Duthie Hill Mountain Bike Park was my first stop – perfect for all experience levels thanks to its 26 trails which are spread across 130 acres of lush forest surroundings. Year after year, this amazing destination attracts many visitors from across Washington state and beyond, and it’s easy to see why. It might not have as many technical runs as other parks which I’ve been to, but a selection of fun and varied trails ensured that my visit was a memorable one.
Our journey then continued onto Raging River, where I was introduced to an awesome flow trail connected to another which goes by the name of Flow State. Established after a collaboration between the Washington State Department of Natural Resources and the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance, it was great to see that both sides have worked together to create such an amazing bike trail.
Finally, we headed to Tiger Mountain – encountering an epic trail called Inside Passage that will eventually be linked with Raging River to create a vast 40-mile trail. With a total distance of 2,518m, this blue rated single track in Issaquah is certainly one of the best quality trails I have encountered, and I was pleasantly surprised by how impressive it was – especially after discovering this is in fact Seattle’s most popular riding area.
