Built in partnership with Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance, Megafauna trail extends from the bottom of The Legend trail descent with a new expert-only downhill riding experience. Like Legend but as steep as Upper Predator. The double black rating is no joke.

A big thank you to the dedicated volunteers who joined Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance this spring to share their time and talents for building these trails. Along with your efforts, the Easy, Tiger extension and Megafauna trails were made possible through a Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program state lands development grant, awarded to DNR by the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office.

Please become a member of Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance & support Washington State DNR as they improve and expand mountain bike trails here in Washington State

Access Info

Ride down the Legend, cross the road and look for the trail sign.

      Tree is gone. Some leaves covering the trail but overall still fun.

      Tree down about 1/4 of the way down the trail - maybe 100 ft after the main rock drop feature. Otherwise running nicely.
