That's awesome

I've seen pictures of this place. It's right underneath an overpass right? Seattle has the best vibe going. I"ve been there a bunch, and if it weren't for Santa Cruz, I'd probably be living there right now.

Damn, that's a great use of land. They really pack the trails in there, and it's in an area where the general public probably won't give a damn or be bothered by it. Don't really have to worry about saving the wilderness or environment since it's right under a freeway too.

The concept is beautiful. B/c it rain so much in seattle, building trails underneath the fwy overpass allow riders to ride year round.

And it is a very good use of left over spaces too

nice videos, thanks for posting!

kudos to the bbtc (http://www.bbtc.org), who've opened this and several other innovative mtb areas in an area that has had strong opposition to mtbs on public trails. another fun small area is lake sawyer, south of seattle.
