Evergreen is proud to showcase the Duthie Hill Mountain Bike Park. This park is located on the Issaquah Plateau, just north of Grand Ridge Park.
The park is a nicely wooded 120 acre forest with rolling terrain and well draining soils. There is a 2.5 acre clearing in the middle, surrounding by second growth forest. On the south end, Duthie Hill connects with Grand Ridge Park, which already has a 6 mile singletrack trail that connects all the way to I-90 in the south. On the north end, Duthie Hill can connect to Soaring Eagle Park via a 1 mile ride up Trossachs Boulevard.
High Level Trail Summary:
- 4 flowy XC trails that can be connected into a ~5 mile loop
- >2 miles of flowy and technical freeride trails of varying difficulty levels

You can typically expect Duthie to be in good riding shape 365 days a year, thanks to the solid design, low elevation, and hard work from Evergreen staff and volunteers.
King County has provided Community Partnership and Youth Sports Facilities and Youth Athletic Fund Grants to help fund the project. Evergreen corporate supporters, private donors and volunteers have contributed over $50,000 and 20,000 volunteer hours to the Park. How cool is that?! Thanks very much to everybody for this awesome place to ride and just hang out!
Duthie Hill Park was designed and built by the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance with grant money from King County and aweseome financial and volunteer support from Evergreen members and the mt biking community. We'd love your financial support to continue to improve and maintain Duthie Hill!
went on this ride today. went up with my newphew which is 10. great ride for beginners. there are some difficult rides also. a lot of different trails to choose from. every trail is marked very well to know where to go. i WILL be hitting this trail again. my cousin bit it pretty hard. but it was because he was trying to hit a jump. so dont let the pic scare you haha
A lot of signs of recent extraordinary rains - but fortunately not on the trails themselves! Aside from a few puddles in the parking lot/access trail, and a few very minor soft spots in places, the you'd never otherwise know it had rained here. HLC is open again and looking great (through the run in to Happy Ending is pretty badly brake bumped).
A few trails closed for repairs, but what's open is flowing greased weasel speed.
VooDoo: check. Ryan's: check. Gravy Train: check (rolling fast!). HLC: closed for repair.
