      This small section of newer trails in the Maple Valley area (one of 4 connected riding areas in Maple Valley) is on the Real Life Church property and are known as the Summit Ridge Trails.

      Most of the 5 XC trails in Summit Ridge are twisty, flowy, and technical trails with numerous bridges, skinnies, log rides, and ladders. The forest is fairly open with decent sight lines, and there are sections of amazing foxglove meadows.

      There is also a freeride park at Summit Ridge. What the freeride park lacks in quantity (compared to something like Duthie Hill), it makes up for in quality! There's 1 line suitable for beginners, 1 to 2 suitable for intermediates to advanced, and a few massively-burly lines for the experts to pros, adding up to 5 total Freeride trails.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      eBikes Allowed: No
      Parking google parking directions
