More than half of the trail is constructed. Lots more buffing and improvement to be had on what's been built. This is an out and back ride as of October 2018. The connection to Beckler Peak trail has not been roughed in or dug yet. Sign up with Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance and join us for a trail building day at Alpine Baldy! https://www.evergreenmtb.org/trails/alpine-baldy for more info.

Alpine Baldy is a partnership between Evergreen, the US Forest Service, and King County to bring you a new cross country trail system. Evergreen crews are up there clearing the trail and beginning construction as of October 2015.

This Phase 1 is just shy of a 15 mile out and back.
