    WA State Parks

Commonly referred to as Power Line, the West Boundary Trail follows the power line from the top of Mount Constitution down to the park's entrance. Popular for many hips and gaps, not for the faint of skill or confidence. Split out at the bottom where Cold Springs trail ties in and hit the truck for another shuttle lap

Note: Moran State Park does not list the trail as closed to bikes on certain calendar days but also makes no reference to allowing bikes though that is it's obvious and primary use. The trail starts at the giant radio towers, but access to this trail from the Mt. Constitution road is clearly marked as trespassing. Most people access Power Line from the intersection with the Cold Springs to Twin Lakes trail.

       Good jump trail that begs for mellow times chillin with buddies. Non-stop jumps the whole way down that are for the most part pretty large. If you're not comfortable hitting 20 ft jumps, you will mostly be riding down a fireroad, but there are still some rad singletrack bits that duck into the woods. If you're hitting the jumps, be prepared for lots of hucks to flat as many jumps feel about 10ft too short for trail speed. You don't have to work to clear any of the jumps, just take a mellow approach and cruse it.
