Trails don’t make themselves—that’s the job of the forest gnomes. And the gnomes were out in droves today at Tokul East (despite the concurrent Seahawks game). We discovered them digging in the dirt, sawing logs, building berms and working their magic to make the local riding routes in Seattle’s big backyard even better.
Members of Evergreen (Mountain Bike Alliance) and local riders spent the day building a new line to connect Last Frontier with Flowtron. We haven’t ridden it yet, but it should be good to go by the time of this post, thanks to the expert engineering and grunt work of such fellows as:
…plus numerous amazing others. Thanks to all who helped build the new line—it gives us something to look forward to next time we’re in this neck of the woods. Currently, the other trails along the hillside are in good shape despite the recent rain and snow melt.
For directions and trail beta, see my earlier post, It’s East vs. West: A Mountain Bike Showdown at Tokul Creek.
See you on the trail!
