I-5 Colonnade is the first ever urban mountain bike skills park. It's part of a City of Seattle park, but was funded and constructed by the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance (formerly Backcountry Bicycle Trails Club). The park features a novice area - the Tqalu Trail; an intermediate and advanced area - Limestone Loop; a dirt jumping section; pump track; trials area and more.

       PLEASE, do not waste your time ... rode all over the place looking for 1 good line, didn't find it. There's a homeless man sleeping on Nick's Kicks while his "stockpile" is sitting on AWOL. There's a healthy pile of human feces on the pump track along with the bedsheets used to clean up. There a pack of drug dealers at the bottom of Limestone Loop. Where water actually made it to the ground after this 20" of rain the moon dust has turned into a slimy conconction of mud, water, discarded Cheetos bags, pieces of old mattresses, and Olde English tall boys. I'm extremely sad to see the hundreds of volunteer hours put into this very impressive skills area go completely to waste. Overgrown flora on the top and busted features all over. The graffiti in the bowls is actually kind of nice, gives a cool feeling on approach, however I was unable to ride it due to the scattered busted milk crates and homeless gold mines all over. On a positive note the off leash dog park was full of happy puppys and smiling latte drinking yuppies the entire time we were there!

       Went to see it for the first time today. It is sad to see such an epic place fall in to disrepair. There were at least two homeless people who had well established camps under the structures and they did not look friendly.
