Mountain Biking in Seattle, WA
About Seattle Mountain Biking
Seattle is a great place to be a mountain biker because of the robust network of park trails found within easy access from the city. On top of that, it is also home to a vibrant community that takes grassroots initiatives to set aside and build even more first-rate places to ride.
One of the best examples of this is right in the heart of city: the I-90 Colonnade Mountain Bike Skills Park. Located beneath the highway, this park is small but it packs in plenty of punch, offering a range of skill-building features such as jumps and high-banked berms. Known as the first urban mountain bike skills park in the U.S., the I-90 Colonnade has since served as a model for other similar spaces throughout the country. For a great combination of technical features and flowy XC single-track, Duthie Hill, in Issaquah, is the place to go. Like the I-90 Colonnade, Duthie Hill exists thanks to the efforts of the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance.
This urban mountain bike park aims to give riders a place to hone their skills, regardless of their current skill levels. Great for all riders!
Duthie Hill mountain bike park is just half an hour from Seattle and offers eight miles of intermediate to advanced trails.
Maybe not the most scenic mountain biking you've ever done, but these routes are surprisingly a lot of fun!
Tiger Mountain offers 16 miles of trails great for mountain biking, and is less than an hour's drive from Seattle.
