We are super excited to announce the 2019 Capitol Forest Enduro course on the new North Slope Trail System off of Hwy 8. These are not like any other trails in Capitol Forest. They were built by mountain bikers for mountain bikers.

The main entrance to the trail system is through Greys Harbor ORV Park (GHORV). Please be respectful when driving through their property. The speed limit is 5mph

Leading up to the race there are two small pullouts at the bottom of A-Line and you can park along the road. You must have a Discover Pass.

Friday, May 31st parking will be available in our venue on GHORV property for $10 per car. Camping is available at GHORV... $20 for Dry Camping and $35 for Hook Ups.

Saturday, June 1st, parking is covered by Race Cascadia. You must go through the GHORV gate.

Due to DNR permitting, safety and trail impacts, shuttles will not be allowed for practice on Friday, May 31st. A 5 minute time penalty will be applied for any infractions.

Very very slick on all the roots with the recent rain. The stump drop is still closed and the ride around is quite awkward, rest of the trail rips though! Gotta be agile on the bike

Trees fell before the three log drops. It’s in a section where you have a lot of speed. I couldn’t move them and didn’t have a saw. They’re right at eye level so please look ahead
