This is just a "Heads Up!" to give y'all some advance notice. We will soon be closing large sections of the NE XC loop and the Bootcamp trail. Stay tuned. Please check the trail page (https://evergreenmtb.org/wiki/index.php?title=Duthie) for the latest status before heading to Duthie to ride. Details under "Current Conditions" (https://evergreenmtb.org/wiki/index.php?title=Trail:Duthie_Hill#Current_Conditions) and more info below.

Recent freezing temps followed by rain are going to require some dry-out time for the trails to pack down so they can shed water as intended. So in the next few weeks we're going to have to close 2 large sections of the NE XC and Bootcamp trails. Riders will still be able to:

* Ride up the road and come down the downhill ending section of Bootcamp
* Ride the initial downhill of the NE XC trail
* Ride the end of the NE XC trail up to the top of Ryan's Line (flowtron style line)
* Ride the end of the NE XC trail to get back up from the bottom of the Mini-D

We need to get signs prepared and will get to it ASAP. See map below. Please stay tuned and check the trails page before you drive out to Duthie to ride. Thanks!

They are open now, but will be closed soon. When the trails are closed the status will be changed from "To be closed soon" to "Closed". We don't know exactly when we'll get to it and we don't know how long the closure will last. It all depends on how many volunteers sign up. Just giving everybody plenty of heads up. Check the wiki the night before you ride Duthie. We'll give at least 24 hours notice on the trail wiki, mtbr, ridemonkey and yahoo boards before we block off the trails.

And please don't forget... the park is not officially open yet. It won't be until early April. King County is being incredibly cool allowing us to ride there while it's under construction! Please don't assume anything is 100% finished. It's under construction. There could be work crews in the trail. Someone could remove a barricade blocking a partially finished feature. Always check everything out before you ride it.

Thanks!
