:moon: This is actually why I posted. I was curious how many know about the proposed changes at Evans like the new campground and different winter closure dates. It seems pretty confusing to me from what I've been reading about it. It sounds like it is "officially" closed but just not enforced as such. They don't have a gate yet so they will enforce once they get one installed.

Just curious how others in our user group feel about this. I have heard "others" say that even if it is "officially" closed, as long as it's not being enforced makes it fine for them to use the area.🤣

Maybe a silly question, but isn't it buried in snow 'bout now?

What's the elevation at the trailhead?

I've ridden Evans years ago and the lack of ST made it a poor ride, so I've never gone back for a second dose of DT misery. But if you want to improve your rut ridding skills Evans Creek could be your training grounds for the new Reiter.

Yes indeed. There are not many decent ST trails left. It sounds like the rutting issue is part of why they are closing it during the winter time, along with the issue of animals needing that area to live during winter time.

By my GPS says that hwy 165 just before it goes into the park is 3200 ft.

About 200 feet higher than Snoqualmie Pass and the ski area there is claiming a 41 inch base.

I have to say that the trails are fun on what ever bike you ride. I do have to say some of them wipe me out physically though.

I agree with Jeff. The ST at Evans is great for any bike. Just not much there. Several loop oppurtunities, can be doubled by going in reverse direction. I agree with the snow closure. Keeps the trails in good shape. In the dry dusty summer months, Evans seems to stay moist and cool.

You guys like bar-wide washes 3' deep with boulders on an MX bike? Knock yourself out. :moon: There's some good anybike stuff there, but a couple trails would really be a handful.

Using a trials bike is cheating! :smirk:

:moon:

I'm selling my old plated Gas Gas, so if anyone else wants to cheat on the trails and REALLY cheat on the road, let me know. :cheers:
